A place to admire

Golden sands and not commercialised. Sand dunes a plenty and not a fish and chip shop or takeaway in sight. The beach is far less littered than your usual seaside resort too.

A wonderful walk when the tide is out, from as far as Whiteness to Culbin, you can walk for under a hour or for most of the day

I can see Nairn beach from my bed, so i am very fortunate where I live, I never tire from going there and you can still have a nice quiet walk there without seeing many people, the water and beach is very clean and you have tramendous views.

This is the place that defines Nairn! The sea, the sand and the opportunities for long lovely walks seem endless.

Spent a week in Nairn and visited the beach every day, even when it was raining and the foam was lying on the sand like lines of sponge. It is such a beautiful beach, sand golden and goes on for miles. Loved just chasing waves and walking along collecting shells. Looks like all the dogs of Nairn appreciate it too,... More

What a fantastic beach. Gorgeous sands. Good for bird watching, and spotting dolphins. Also, brilliant for building sandcastles.
