Balmedie Beach, Aberdeen

(4.6/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Explore miles of sandy beach, fly a kite, and build a sandcastle at Balmedie Beach. Dip your toes in the North Sea, and if you’re feeling brave go for a swim. Sit on top of the great sand dunes, relax, and watch the waves. Kids can enjoy the play area or tire themselves out running on the expanse of wide and flat beach. There are no snack shops located on the beach, so bring a picnic along or make use of the barbeque area. Put Balmedie Beach into our Aberdeen vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I love Balmedie for a walk with the dogs or just to clear your mind by the sea. Beautiful beach with mimimal pollution and lovely sand dunes! Must see beach if you are in the Aberdeen (Shire) area! 
  • A tremendous beach offering opportunities for family fun and aditionally great photographic oportunities. 
  • Great beach, you can wander and wander for miles. Very special. So close to the city but a great place to get away from it all.
