Burghead Beach marks the eastern end of Burghead Bay.
It is a quiet beach popular with watersport enthusiasts and you will occasionally see windsurfers and kitesurfers. Initially stony, the beach then becomes sandy. The tide drifts a long way out making it ideal for kite buggying.
Directions - follow the signs for the Caravan site where there are a few parking spaces. In addition there is a car park further along the esplanade.
Burghead has a few eating places with good pubs, shop, bakery and there’s a mobile cafe near the esplanade.
