Aberdour Silver Sands is a small, sandy beach with good views of the islands of Inchmickery and Inchcolm. Backed by woodland the beach has a very tranquil feel. An excellent section of the Fife Coastal Path passes behind the beach.

As you would expect from a blue flag beach there are plenty of facilities here such as a beach-front café, toilets and first aid.
