Excellent beach to both sides of the harbour, clean white sandy beach with great views over to the Black Isle. Just be aware that the tide can move very fast so if you're on one of the big sandbars, just keep an eye on the state of the tide so you don't get cut off. There's a park with playground,... More

This beach is easily reached from most hotels and has all the amenities for the family. Lovely stretch of sand and a fantastic play area for children with great views of the black isle coastline. Parking is free but limited.

Untouched, natural beauty spot looking over to the Black Isle. Good walks right to the small marina leading back into town centre means you can do a loop easily. Flat paths so suitable for everyone on foot.

Escape from everyone and everything without having to own your island! The tranquility of Nairn extends further out into a view across the Firth so that you won't even remember what you were stressed out about before!

Miles of sand & blue seas. Great for walking, playing, chilling & all set in a lovely little town and free parking to boot!

We went to the beach to build sandcastles but then after that we went for a walk up the beach, the sun was shining, the sand was amazing, and the scenery was tranquil. We must have collected a hundred shells on our walk. There was no rubbish or mess anywhere. It was my dream beach.

Very clean beach, plenty of free parking and a nice lot of space for the dogs to run around. A small cafe is also available for drinks, snacks and ice creams. Well worth a visit.

I really enjoyed walking miles along the seashore paddling in my welly boots. It is so peaceful and unspoilt.

This is a fine holiday beach with good sand and plenty of space. Contiguous with it is pleasant grassland (linksland, really) and on it a good children's playpark - fine Sewdish equipment - and an excellent small cafe. Not 5 stars because it's not the most picturesque beach you could find. At one end is a large block of very... More

It was a little cool to be in the water but the beach was very pretty. White sands with small sea shells all around. Very nice views of the sea . A must visit spot
