Approximately eight miles east of Leven, the linked villages have long been a popular seaside resort owing to their tranquil setting on the Fife Coastal Path. Elie and Earlsferry has retained much of its charm and character, and a rich architectural landscape: from 17th century cottages and townhouses, to imposing Victorian and Edwardian villas. The town boasts a wealth of local amenities, including a library, a newsagent, a deli, a bakery, a grocer and a chemist, as well as no shortage of cafés, restaurants, bars, pubs and guesthouses. Elie and Earlsferry is renowned for its fantastic sports and outdoor activities, such as golfing at Elie Golf House Club and Earlsferry Links Golf Course, or tennis, bowls and putting at Elie Sports Club. The bays around Elie and Earlsferry are also perfect for surfing, sailing and water sports. Nursery and primary schooling are provided locally at Elie Primary School, followed by secondary education at Waid Academy in Anstruther.
