Portobello - West (Kings Road) Beach
West beach forms the northern section of the 2-mile stretch of sandy coast in the Edinburgh suburb of Portobello.
Turning left at the end of King’s Road a promenade heads north-west past the bus depot towards Craigentinny Golf Course. Alternatively, head south-east, down the promenade, past the southern sections of Portobello Beach, towards Joppa. This makes a pleasant walk whatever the time of year.
There is a choice of cafes and other amenities to be found along the promenade. A number of events are organised along the beach, including volleyball events, boating competitions and triathlons.
