Newhaven has developed greatly in recent years and offers residents an excellent range of local amenities, including a 24-hour ASDA superstore and Ocean Terminal, which is home to high-street stores and restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and a 24-hour gym. Neighbouring Leith also offers a wide range of shops, bars, and restaurants. For sports and fitness enthusiasts, Newhaven certainly delivers, with extensive facilities at the David Lloyd Gym and Club and a fantastic indoor climbing centre at Alien Rock. For a more relaxing option, Newhaven's waterfront forms part of the Edinburgh promenade, which extends along Granton towards Cramond Beach.
