Findhorn beach marks the western edge of Burghead Bay. It’s a beautiful beach with Culbin Forest to the west and the sweep of Burghead Bay to the east. It’s ones of the best known beaches in Moray. Seals can often be seen basking in the sun at the top of the bay. On the other side of the bay lies Culbin Sands.

Findhorn is a delightful village sitting at the mouth of the River Findhorn. It’s very popular with sailing enthusiasts. You can take a dolphin spotting boat trip, learn to sail or just relax and enjoy a drink while overlooking Findhorn Bay.

On the outskirts of the village you will find the Findhorn Foundation – an alternative community formed in the sixties. It’s well worth a visit to wander around the eco houses which range from caravans to high end low carbon footprint houses. On site there’s a cafe and shop as well as some artisan outlets including a pottery. Other activities in Findhorn include dolphin spotting boat trips and wandering through the attractive village.


To find Findhorn Beach, travel through the village and find car parking areas hidden among the sand dunes. There are public conveniences in the car park and it’s a short walk to find a good selection of food outlets in Findhorn village.

The car park is fairly extensive. There are public toilets as well.

To the east of Findhorn you will find Roseisle Beach and Burghead Beach.
