Balmedie Beach, Aberdeen

(4.6/5 based on 480+ 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.
