Day Out Cambo Sands Beach Kingsbarns

Cambo Sands Beach Kingsbarns is only 3 miles from Crail. Kingsbarns is one of the best beaches in the area. It is great for bathing or just going for long beach walks.

Day Out Cambo Sands Beach – How to get there:

Kingsbarns is only a very short 15 minute drive from the Crail on the A917 to St Andrews. Just before you reach the village take a right turn, signposted “Beach”. Head down the single track road with passing places to the beach. At the end of the road is a car park with free parking.

Bus

Kingsbarns is served by the 95 bus which is an hourly service from Crail. The bus stop is in the Square. From the bus stop it is approximately a half hour walk through the village to the beach.

Kingsbarns Beach

This is a wonderful stretch of beach and is very popular throughout the year. If you don’t want to take food with you the Cheesy Toast Shack provides excellent hot and cold snacks throughout the year.  There are ample picnic tables all near the car park and the beach. The beach is long with lots of sand, flat, shallow and ideal for swimming, paddling, and building sandcastles. It’s a favourite spot for barbeques as the car park is not too far to carry any cooking equipment.

Fife Coast and Countryside Trust who manage the beach and car parking area have recently added a new toilet block.

A long stretch of sand awaits, backed by dunes, the Fife Coastal Path and the Kingsbarns Golf links. A good beach for a walk even if it’s not sunbathing weather. It also offers the possibility of a walk up through woodland to Cambo House. There is a tearoom, a glorious walled garden and different features and exhibitions which change with the seasons. Entry fee is £6.50 per person.
