Famous for the opening scenes of the film Chariots of Fire West Sands extends for almost two miles of uninterrupted sand backed with dunes and the world-renowned golf course. The beach is about 15 minutes walk from the town centre. There is plenty of car parking, lots of information available and zoning of the beach to keep sand yachts and families apart. It is very popular for walking and running on as well as for swimming. Shops and restaurants are close by and there are plenty of wet weather alternatives, including the Golf museum and nearby Castle and Cathedral. Lifeguards patrol the beach during the peak season.
The beach is accessed from A91 Cupar - St Andrews road. It is 15 minutes walk from the bus station.

Visited this well known beach in St Andrews back in September and most definitely cannot fail this fantastic stretch of beach whatsoever. Really enjoyed walking on this really long beach. Love the amazing dune backdrop too. Can see why it is popular!
Huge expanse of white sand with the beautiful backdrop of St Andrews...perfect.
