Portobello Beach


    Despite its urban location, Portobello Beach still retains its traditional seaside charm.

    Situated just a few miles from the city centre, the blue flag beach offers a peaceful escape from city life giving the city slickers a chance to relax in the outdoors. You can still buy crepes and ice cream on the promenade and peruse the old fashioned sweetie shop, while on a hot summer’s days the beach is popular with swimmers and sunbathers.

    Stretching for two miles and overlooking the Forth, this lovely clean sandy beach provides a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants plus a sailing club, indoor swimming pool with Turkish baths and amusement arcades.
