Aberdour Silver Sands is one of the most popular and attractive resorts on the Fife coast. The beach offers the freshness and variety of the seaside as well as the peace and tranquility of the countryside. The shore, in its charming setting, looks out to the Islands of Inchmickery and Inchcolm, where there is a famous Abbey. The Fife coastal path passes by this beach and the section from here is well worth walking. Beach Lifeguards patrol the beach over the summer holidays.
The beach is just off the A921 road from Inverkeithing to Burntisland. The beach is 10 minutes walk from train station.
This beach was one of fourteen beaches managed by FCCT, which won Keep Scotland Beautiful 2018 Beach Awards and VisitScotland 4 Star Quality Assurance Award.
Aberdour Silver Sands toilets (seasonal opening) won Gold in the National Loo of the Year Awards 2019.
