City Beach, Aberdeen

(240+ reviews on the web)
Beach
Spend time by the sea just a short distance from Aberdeen's center at City Beach. The long sandy stretch enjoys popularity among both locals and visitors. In addition to being a perfect area to take a stroll in the sea breeze, the beach offers a number of different amenities you can enjoy. Along its length you'll find plenty of restaurants and cafes, movie theaters, and recreational facilities. Would-be bathers be warned: even though you may see an occasional swimmer in the sea, the water this far north is usually too cold for a pleasurable dip. Plan your City Beach visit and explore what else you can see and do in Aberdeen using our Aberdeen trip itinerary planner.
