Driving along the beach front road has marvellous views of the extensive superb beaches as well as able to watch commercial vessels entering or leaving Aberdeen harbour. There are cafes along the front along with other attractions such as skating centre and fun fair. At the end of the sea front promonade, you can make your way to views within... More

You see them eating there ice cream. There 99 cones with the flake @ 150 a cone. You can buy from any of the cafés on the beach... More

Aberdeen Beach is a special place to us - where we met 42 years ago! We never tire of a trip down whether it's warm and sunny, (rarely!), or cold and overcast, (usually!). Our recent visit was during a bit of a heatwave and we were able to sit out at the Inversnecky and watch the world go by, and... More

We loved this beach with the wonderful view and easy access...took local bus to beach and it was so easy to get there...if you walk towards centre of the beach you could get some eateries and other things. Very good for a 2 hours visit

This is Aberdeen's pedestrian thru fare come the North East wind that would cut you in half or that elusive sun, in the rain and in the snow you will find the hardy folk with their ice-creams promenading. This is Aberdeen’s stress relief valve two miles of sand between two rivers. Few towns/ cities can boast a city beach and... More

We visit our Beach (depending on weather) as it is nice and flat when walking the prom. Its amazing the amount of people(same faces) that one sees. There are runners, walkers, doggie walkers and visitors to the city. Again it can be spoiled by litter louts and I think our own Council could spend a bit of money freshening or... More

Aberdeen beach was busy last Sunday as it was gloriously sunny and springlike. Lots of families including ours, walking along the promenade. It was nice to blow away the cobwebs and fill our lungs with bracing sea air. There are a few fast food outlets and the burnt out shell of what I think is an amusement arcade and a... More
