The Links, Beacon and beach form the town’s main recreation spaces.
The Links was granted by Royal Charter in 1541 to the Burgh of Burntisland by King James V of Scotland. Burntisland highland games are held on the third Monday in July, and are Scotland’s second oldest games dating back to 1652. A fairground is located on the links between May and August every year.
The main play area is situated at the eastern end of the Links. A water play feature is located here.
Across the railway is the beach and Beacon leisure centre. The Beacon Leisure Centre is open every day and has a swimming pool and gym. Outside the centre is a skatepark, multi-use games area and synthetic turf pitches.
The Lifeguards are present at the beach from the 24th June to the 28th August. The beach gained a Scotland’s beach award in 2016.
