“Good for quick getting away from Aberdeen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

The beach is 12 miles north of Aberdeen. It is very beautiful. Very long beach but there is nothing nearby. A nice playground for kids. Good for picnic and spend the day doing nothing. A little messy on Sunday afternoon. Trash bins were all full or overflow. Believe that it is clean on the weekday. A little tricky to get from the parking to the beach without getting wet from going across a tiny creek. Study the beach map carefully. The weather was very nice on Sunday April 20 (Easter). Imagine that it could be very cold in a bad day.

“Wonderful windswept beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Beautiful dunes and beach, impossible to take a bad photo, small play park at the entrance and board walks over the dunes for ease of access. Young or old, this is a fantastic space.

I took my dog for a lovely long walk on the beach, not the warmest day, but it was beautiful. Really enjoyed it

“Sandtastic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Lovely clean beach with beautiful natural dunes. Miles of sand to build castles on or go for a paddle. One on the best beaches ever
