Watersports in Fife

Elie Beach 738


We are truly spoiled for choice when it comes to watersports in Fife, and if it’s all things aquatic you are into, this is the perfect place for you. Fife is home to beautiful sandy beaches, rivers, harbours, and of course the North Sea.

Scotland’s national waterski centre is 35 miles away, just north of Dunfermline. All levels of abilities are welcome and catered for. The fully qualified staff will look after you and help to hone your skills. Prices start from just £15 per day including all the equipment you will need.

Looking for some top dives? There is a treat waiting for you just 12 miles from Elderburn Lodges. Take the ferry from Anstruther to the Isle of May. It’s a haven for birds (and birdwatchers) but divers often come face-to-face with porpoise and dolphins, and the island supports a large breeding group of grey seals. If you’re a qualified diver you can enjoy the many dives available. Visit the Divebunker website for more information.

Fife is also home to two award-winning Blue Flag beaches: Aberdour Silver Sands, and Elie Woodhaven. They really are worth a visit, as are the East Sands and West Sands in St. Andrews, and Tentsmuir beach just along the coast.

Watersports in Fife – Elie

Elie deserves a mention of it’s own. The beach is deservedly award-winning, and the perfect place to relax and unwind, or get the adrenalin pumping! Elie Watersports caters for all levels of thrill seekers in the sheltered bay and beyond on the open seas. During the summer (tide permitting) the beach is host to a number of cricket games – definitely worth watching – don’t forget your camera. The view from the harbour wall is idyllic, taking in the beautiful seaside cottages and the sweep of the bay. We challenge you not to fall in love with Elie.
