Easy Access from Aberdeen. Lots of car parking, although a pay and display setup.
Never crowded, even on a busy day!

We used to take the kids here when they were younger and they even cycled on the beach. The beach is reached by parking in a reasonably priced car park with toilet facilities and walking through the dunes. Close to the car park are picnic tables and a safe childrens play area. The beach is stunning and if warmer would be mobbed with holidaymakers but as it is it is far enough from Aberdeen to be the preserve of a few people only mainly dog walkers. Had the joy to see well groomed horses enjoying a canter with their riders. Climbing in the dunes is good and good exercise too. The beach stretches for miles and you can easily spend a couple of quality hours here topping up on fresh oxygen, love it

Ideal for long walks whatever the weather and for giving your dog a serious run. There's always plenty of beach even if the tide is in, and there's also the big sand dunes. Access is improved and there is a car park.

Balmedie Beach is such a lovely place for walks (or exercise if you're into that), weather permitting of course. The dunes are just so fantastic and make it so unique. Well worth seeing.

too windy for a picnic when we went but absolutely fabulous sandy beach and a great stretch for the legs with loads of interesting birds to see especially on the inlet going down to the beach.
