If you're looking for a coastal break for the whole family, then you should look no further than Fife. The Kingdom of Fife has so many seaside towns to choose from that you'll be spoilt for choice, but where should you visit first?
 


The East Neuk of Fife is very popular with walkers (dog and human) because of its breath-taking views over the Firth of Forth. Perhaps overlooked by tourists due to its proximity with Edinburgh, Fife is well worth a visit and you'll need more than a day to cover the area. We have put together a list of our top coastal towns that will get you started on your journey.
