Monifieth Sands is a sandy stretch of beach on the north shore of the Firth of Tay, stretching from Barnhill in the west to the Barry Sands in the east. Monifieth Bay is a site of special scientific interest for wildfowl and wadering birds. Groynes and some rocks are exposed at low tide. Behind the beach there is an excellent play area for children and a skate board park.

Getting there

The A930 from Dundee passes through Monifieth and the beach car park is just to the south of this road. A cycle and walking path connecting Dundee to Arbroath passes Monifieth Beach. The route connects to train stations joining many of the beaches in Angus.
