Great for walking along the beach or over the dunes. Had a fab day with my grandchildren, they climbed up the dunes and raced down them. Lovely family time x

We love to come here at any possible opportunity during the summer months, the dunes are amazing for kids and a really nice place to walk around and clear the mind. The beach could do with more regular clear up's though.

Lovely beaches, access from a free carpark after a bit of a walk, access from Balmedie is easy, although while the road-works are on accessing Balmedie itself is tricky... However, by end 2018 this will be over and the new road system finished and in...More

It isn’t the easiest to get to but definitely worth the drive. Never too busy with lots of friendly people and pets. Has a few nice places not too far away to eat.

This is a superb sandy beach which is obviously very popular with locals and visitors alike. Despite the very cold weather we enjoyed the time we had and is a great spot at any time of the year.

Beautiful destination but disappointed that Aberdeen council don't allow entry to the car park for motorhomes. There is a small tarmac area at the bottom of beach road that can be used for parking your motorhome but only when it is quiet.
