Broughty Ferry Beach


    Nestled beneath a historic castle in the former fishing village of Broughty Ferry, this spacious sandy beach is the perfect destination for a relaxing family day out.

    This award-winning sandy beach lies just to the east of Broughty Ferry Castle at the mouth of the Tay Estuary.

    Flanked by dunes, the beach boasts lovely views across the Tay Estuary to the north coast of Fife. It is home to a nature conservation site where a remarkable array of wildlife can be found including birds, seals and even the occasional porpoise.

    Windbreaks are available for hire during the summer months when volleyball nets are also erected and a safe area for swimming is cordoned off.

    Close by are a wide range of attractions including Broughty Castle Museum, an excellent children’s play area, a rock garden, cafés, bars, shops, restaurants and a local jet ski club.
