The sea and beach

A wonderful panoramic view of the sea, the shore and the ships "standing off". When the sea is calm it is a great place to put your feet into the Sea!

Went for a walk along the beach in Aberdeen and walked for miles, enjoying the peace and quiet. Listening to the waves crashing onto the sand as the tide started to come in. Even though it was a damp day, you can't beat a peaceful walk along a beautiful beach to clear all the cobwebs away.

We were lucky to be able to wear short sleeves in September due to the lovely weather. We walked the whole length of the beach and surprised just how lovely it is here

The day we visited it was windy and cold. But it was amazing to experience the chill air hitting ur face while sprinkle of water was adding the magic touch to it.

A lovely beach with views out to the North Sea. Great location not too far from the harbour or the city centre. Really pleasant for a walk. A nice surprise for those visiting Aberdeen. Free on street parking plus a shopping complex and amusements nearby

We attended a family wedding at the Town House, a beautiful building inside and out, excellent for the ceremony. We stayed in the Atheneaum Apartments opposite the Town House, although on a very busy thoroughfare, Union Street, the double glazing worked very well. The Beach Ballroom - only a few minutes away on the beach front - hosted the party... More

A lovely beach with lots of free parking, and a great place for a picnic ahilst watching the ships, even better when the wind drops.

Aberdeen beach is a great place if the wind is not howling, and the rain is off. There are a couple of miles of parking and sand to walk along, with a quiet end and a more commercial end. Blow away the cobwebs with a stroll along the shore here. A fantastic place to get a breath of fresh air!
