Tourist Information

Things to see & do in Balmedie

Balmedie's long and wide beach of clean golden sand is bordered by an extensive dune system that stretches 14 miles (23 km) from Aberdeen to just north of the Ythan Estuary at Newburgh.

The Balmedie Country Park provides its visitors with many things to see and do. The park consists of wooden walkways across the sands and streams, picnic areas with barbecues, and a swing park with a fishing theme for children. The park is often used by horse riders as a starting & finishing point for beach rides and there is plenty of room to park a horsebox or trailer.

The beach is very popular with the local residents for walks or jogging in the fresh air. The dunes are wonderful places for finding a sunny and sheltered spot to read in, or sunbathe on a fair day, or for games of hide and seek. Over the years the beach has won a number of awards.
