Aberdeen beach front is all beach and not much of the commercial side of what you would expect of a seaside town. There are a few cafes and a small funfair but mostly all beach for you to walk along. We endeavour to keep our beach clean and we have areas for surfers as well as the keen kite flyers... More

Have been going to Aberdeen Beach regularly for years now, it is a beautiful beach but sadly the grass is only cut regularly throughout the summer at one end of the beach as the bit between the upper and lower prom going towards Bridge of Don only seems to get cut about once a year, as there is no lighting...

Nice long flat promenade on two levels to stroll along without getting your feet sandy, with more kites and dogs further out of town. We saw a whale about a half mile offshore blowing, breaching and turning to show tail.

What a lovely beach to walk along. Great day out, well worth the visit, highly recommend to all ages. Surprised dogs could stroll freely, however, very clean. Close to Aberdeen fairground with many rides. Close to the harbour, many ships alway in and plenty of fishing vessels out at sea to see. Would return here.
