Nairn Central

Nairn Central beach is a sandy, accessible beach fringed by dunes with a hinterland of an open, grassy links area. It has beautiful views across the Moray Firth to the Black Isles. The coastline is home to a resident school of dolphins. There are first aid provisions provided by the leisure centre at the west end of the beach. Nearby there is a small cafe and an excellent play area.

Nairn has new real time signage installed for 2016 which displays up to date daily forecasts for water quality provided by SEPA. Predictions can be viewed here
