2 mile long Portobello Beach makes a great hub for water sports scene in Edinburgh, so get your kayak, meet new people and share experiences.

Rowing boats from one of the local rowing clubs can be seen at the beach daily, Stand-up Paddle Boarders and sailing boats are a common view as well.

Firth of Forth offers great views and rich wildlife, seals are common and rare seabirds appear occasionally.

One thing to remember is that the jet skis are banned around Portobello.
