“Fresh air, sea views.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

The beach front is a busy place for those exercising by walking/jogging and also strollers like myself. It is popular with wind surfers and those wanting to 'play' on the beach, and offers good views of the Harbour with all it's diverse traffic. A good range of cafes and restaurants are close by as is Codona's amusement park and a Cineworld complex. With plenty of free parking and a retail park relatively close, it is a good place to be.

“Unexpectedly lovely beach within the city!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went to the beach not expecting any beach within a city to be any great shakes. How wrong we were. Lovely clean sand, lovely promenade, various shops and cafes, and the weather was splendid when we were there. Proper seaside in a city - well worth a look.

“Great place for a day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

A walk along Aberdeen Beach is lovely on a nice day and even when it's windy/cloudy, the view is still incredible. Very lucky to live so close to this beach!! (I had to choose a specific date/type of visit though have visited on various occasions with people as well as on my own)

“A good place for a walk and fresh air”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Aberdeen has a long sandy beach, off which you can have food and drinks. It is popular with people wanting to stretch the legs and go for a brisk walk or those on the beach and enjoying an ice-cream. Being on the east coast be prepared for cold winds at time. Although I have been on the beach on several occasions where it has been warm and sunny.
