Lovely beach and esplanade

The beach is lovely and sandy and has a very long esplanade which is ideal for walking. It can be a bit exposed to the wind but is very accessible.

An Ok beach if the weather is favourable. Which is not often. Very cold water as you would expect from the North sea.

The beach is lovely to walk along, it is surprisingly clear of litter which is an improvement from over the years. Would definitely recommend you see it.

On a sunny day the beach is nice to walk along and the sand is usually clean and free of litter. At the end of the beach boulevard you can either turn up to the left and walk towards the beach ballroom or turn right where all the cafes and pizza hut/cinema etc are. It's a bit noisier down this... More

Visited here on a cold but sunny morning. The beach looked really nice we sat watching the ships pass. Had a walk along the beach plenty of granite along the beach.

I find Aberdeen city beach is one of the most interesting places to visit in this city (which isn't saying a great much), and it can be very stunning on a good day. Like many comments have said, it's not an ideal beach for sunbathing, however taking a stroll along it is a must do for anyone visiting.

It's lovely to live in a city with a beach in such close proximity. Being so far north this certainly isn't a beach to lie on or even go swimming (though some do!), but it is a beautiful place for a walk. There's a lot of stuff around the beach if it's too cold to walk the length of it:... More

A beach so close to the bustling city center is just fabulous. Something I truthfully cannot get over. This long stretch of beach provides us with a brisk walk taking in our surroundings. Able to walk along the sand if your feeling brave or the promenade if not. Lovely in all weather! Have seen ourselves even driving here on a... More

The wife and I popped down the Aberdeen city beach while on stop over recently. The weather was wild to say the least, however it didn't stop us really enjoying our walk up and down this little treasure close to the city centre.

Fantastic beach and really accessible from the city centre. Went running along the front and enjoyed a spectacular sun rise even if a bit bracing!!! Lots of facilities and outlets so plenary to do. Small fun fair looked inviting but bed closed. If you are in town for whatever reason it's a very short walk to enjoy a great walk... More
