About Edinburgh Area Guide > Portobello

Just three miles east of the city centre is Edinburgh's seaside suburb, Portobello, with two miles of golden sand and walk along promenade. Summer days see visitors and locals flock here to swim, play and relax.

If the weather is less than clement then the Victorian elegance of Portobello Swim Centre beckons. The centre is home to one of only three functioning Turkish baths in Scotland.
 

Further down the promenade is Tumbles, Edinburgh's first and only purpose-built gymnastics facility and Softplay venue. Visitors can also keep fit by cycling or walking along the promenade and Craigentinny Golf Course is a short drive away.
 

To satisfy the hungry appetite, Portobello High Street offers an assortment of cafes and restaurants. During Spring and Summer, Portobello Markets is held in Brighton Park selling local and organic fruit, veg, meat, fish and baking, as well as a selection of crafts and other organic products.
