    Aberdeen Beach

    Photographs of Aberdeen Beach with facilities such as cafes and Queens Links


    Aberdeen Beach is famed for its golden sands and promenade which can be walked from the Harbour to the mouth of the River Don by the Bridge of Don. Features include Victorian railings and walks, plenty of seats, sheltered pavilion seating, free public toilets, free parking, disabled car park and lots of places to eat or enjoy an ice-cream.

    Aberdeen Beach










    It is popular with families, dog walkers and surfers and is a must for those visiting our City. Sections by the cafes, restaurants and Codonas Amusements, are dog free zones making this one of the cleanest beaches in Scotland. In the summer of 2013 it won an environmental award from Keep Scotland Beautiful for the area thanks to its cleanliness, water quality and safety. This Scottish Seaside Award and Blue Flag has been held since 2007 and others awarded nearby include Balmedie, Collieston, Cruden Bay and Peterhead Lido. Restaurants include TGI Fridays, Pizza Hut, Frankie & Benny's Italian restaurant, Chiquito Mexican restaurant, Jimmy Chung's Chinese restaurant and a Burger King.

    The Beach Ballroom is also located in Queens Links where dance classes, concerts and events are held.

    Scottish Beach



    Several years ago it suffered from erosion so replacement sand was shipped in and modern day visitors will see the large black rocks, These rock groynes are designed to stop further erosion. The wooden sections that separate sections are the old fashioned wooden groynes.
