“Good in Just summers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

One of the best beaches in UK amidst all the Oil rigs and pollution's off shores of Aberdeen this is still maintained well. 'Good job Aberdeen City Council'. Give a definite visit in summers(in case if u have one in Aberdeen..:P) Beautiful blue waters in good summers and a great atmosphere with the lovely people around.

“Windy but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I, compared to some of the more mature people that I am acquainted with am a regular visitor as I think it is easily the best attraction in Aberdeen and makes the City so attractive. Key highlights are convenient parking, sheltered walkways to not too distant cafes and sand.

Best seen early on in the day and seldom ruined by the weather

“Check out the weather before walking the prommenade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

A great Sunday (or any other day) walk is wlking north from the harbour along the beach and returning by walking along the prommenade. Also a very popular activity for many locals and visitors alike. beware in the wrong weather it can be horrendous if caught out in a sudden 'storm' os make sure you are well prepared for sudden weather changes

“Bracing...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

With a gale howling in off the North Sea, it's hard to believe that Aberdeen was once a major seaside resort in Scotland, but the beach is still a nice place for a stroll. It's well swept by the tide, which comes right up to the sea wall and is therefore clean and reasonably litter and dog-poo free. There are shelters for you to avoid any rain/sleet squalls.
