Aberdour Silver Sands

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 there is a great cafe to refuel before heading towards Burntisland.

Beach Lifeguards patrol the beach over the summer period.

The beach is just off the A921 road from Inverkeithing to Burntisland. And it’s a 10 minute walk from Aberdour train station.

This beach was one of 14 beaches managed by FCCT, which won Keep Scotland Beautiful 2023 Beach Awards. Aberdour Silver Sands has held this award for 30 years. It also holds the VisitScotland 4 Star Quality Assurance Award.

Aberdour Silver Sands toilets (seasonal opening) won Gold in the national Loo of the Year Awards.
