Broughty Ferry has a fantastic sandy resort award winning beach. In the summer thousands of people come to build sand castles and paddle in the water. In the winter the beach becomes a haven for migrating waders. At any time of year it is great for a walk. Please note that animals are not allowed on the beach from May to September.
Local people have got involved with beach clean ups as part of Broughty in Bloom. Broughty Ferry Environmental Project have carried out wildlife surveys and restored dunes. Countryside Rangers lead school groups using the beach for nature study. Dolphins can often be seen in the Tay from the beach.
The Esplanade runs along the top of the beach passed sand dunes and sand martin nests to Broughty Castle and Castle Green play park. The play park won a Nancy Ovens award in 2008, with its new equipment and water play features. Castle Green also features a crazy golf course, kiddicars and attractive flower beds, which also are a feature of the quieter Windmill Gardens across the road.
