Nestled beneath a historic castle in the former fishing village of Broughty Ferry, now a residential suburb of Dundee is an extensive sandy beach. A promenade gives direct pedestrian and disabled access at several locations. The beach is backed by dunes and provides views across the Tay estuary to the North Fife coast. There is a nature conservation site and a host of wildlife, including birds, seals and the occasional porpoise can be seen. There is a safe area marked out for swimming and close by are an extensive range of leisure facilities including the castle museum, an excellent play area, and a beautiful rock garden. There is also an ice-cream vendor located close to the play park and beach. Lifeguards patrol the beach during the peak summer season.
From Dundee follow the A930 (Monifieth / Carnoustie road) to Broughty Ferry. At the Queen Street / St Vincent Street junction turn right and follow the signs to Broughty Ferry beach. The Sustrans National Route 1 also passes by Broughty Ferry beach.

Certainly worth visiting, due to cleanliness and family friendly enviroment at this lovely beach. The beach stretches for miles, allowing oppurtunity for walks. Lovely views over the tay towards fife. Deserves its blue flag.
