Aberdour-Silver Sands Beach

Aberdour Silver Sands is one of the most popular and attractive sandy beaches on the Fife coast. The beach offers the freshness and variety of the seaside as well as the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. The shore, in its charming setting, looks out to the Islands of Inchmickery and Inchcolm, where there is a famous Abby.  The Fife coastal path passes by this beach and the section from here is well worth walking.

Lifeguards patrol the beach during the peak season, 2nd July - 31st August.

 

Access: The beach is a ten minute walk from the train station, and just off the A921 from Inverkeithing and Burntisland.  The coastal path passes this beach too.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
