Leven is a resort town overlooking the Firth of Forth. It has plenty of amenities, and there are two golf courses and some good walks to be enjoyed in the area.

West Beach forms the townward part of a long stretch of sand north-east from the mouth of the River Leven to Lundin Links. The beach is backed by a promenade, which is a good place to take a stroll along this section of the 150-mile long Fife Coast Path.

There is a camping and caravan park behind the beach.
