Aberdeen Beach

Aberdeen beach itself is famous for its golden sand and its long curved length between the harbour (Footdee) and the River Don’s mouth.

The beach suffers from the erosion of the sand so there are distinctive groyne or walls, to help keep the sand in place.

The beach is popular with walkers, surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers, is backed by the famous Beach Esplanade where there are restaurants, a cinema and an amusement park. Other facilities by the beach include toilets, car parking and boardwalks in the dunes.

Aberdeen Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
