City Beach, Aberdeen

3.9
#2 of 16 in Outdoors in Aberdeen
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.

  • The beach to the walking and thinking get involved. Even now, beginning of March, it was pleasant to spend time there. It was a little windy, but that didn't bother with the sunshine. There is also an impressive swell.
