Aptly renamed the Riviera of Scotland due to its balmy microclimate, Elie justly deserves its reputation as one of Scotland�s favourite holiday destinations for over a century. Generations of Scots consider Elie their second home. Set within the East Neuk of Fife, the pretty small town overlooks a wide crescent of golden sand, which is also a safe and award winning beach.

One of several charming fishing villages including Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem and St Monans which encircle the East Neuk and within easy drive of St Andrews, Elie offers sailing, surfing, golf and tennis, with plenty to offer visitors of all ages. Perfect as a holiday destination for children whatever the weather, visitor attractions close by are the famous St Andrews Golf links, the adjacent Sea Life Centre, and Anstruther�s Fisheries Museum. In winter, the town offers good cosy pubs, brisk walks and marvellous visual seascapes.
