Stonehaven is a popular coastal resort, which is well used by watersports enthusiasts.
Stonehaven Beach is approximately 1.1 km in length, bound by the outflow of the River Carron and the harbour jetty to the south, and rocky outcrops at the northern end.
The southern end of the bay is sandier and therefore gets greater usage by bathers. An electric sign displaying real-time bathing water quality predictions is available at this beach in summer months, and you can find out the daily prediction by visiting the SEPA website.
Stonehaven is located just off the A90, 14 miles south of Aberdeen and approximately 20 miles north from Montrose taking the coastal route - A92. The town is well sign posted from both roads. The access to the beach from the southern end of town is at the historical harbour area or from the northern end via Beach Road which is adjacent to the sports centre and open air swimming pool. Both points are well sign posted.
