Moray is known for its beautiful coastal villages and incredible walking trails, but one of the most beautiful spots for relaxing has to be Roseisle beach.
Situated between Findhorn and Burghead, the beautiful sandy beach offers brilliant views of the seaside village and town to each side.
Due to its brilliant location, clear waters and clean sandy shores, Roseisle is always busy – but it amazingly never seems to get crowded. This is probably because of its extensive size, which means you don’t have to walk very far to be in peaceful solitude.
The privacy that the beach offers allows a great opportunity to relax and reflect. On even the most stressful of days, the sound of the ocean waves can always help wash my worries away.
Something I work very hard at is making sure that I take time out of my busy schedule to look after my mental well-being. I have found that, apart from the pond beside Carden, nowhere helps me unwind like the beach at Roseisle.
Studies have shown that the sounds of nature – including the ocean and birds chirping – can help you recover faster from a stressful event. Therefore, if you’re looking for a break from the stress and business of everyday life, this is the ideal place for you to visit.
The incredible beach is not all that Roseisle has to offer offer – it also boasts a woodland area that is equally picturesque, and just as relaxing when trying to escape.
The sweet smelling pine trees add to the relaxing atmosphere – making all of your senses completely at peace.
There really is something for every member of the family in the area – a beach, woods and even a play park. Every part of the area is just as beautiful during cold days as it is during the summer.
There is also a lot of military history to the beach – with the remnants of anti-tank blocks and pillboxes still standing on the shore. Therefore, regardless if you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere or an adventure full of hiking ad history, you can find it here.
Our whole family loves Roseisle beach so much that it is where we spend our Boxing Day every year. We usually set up in the afternoon and have drinks and barbecues all day, with a big roaring fire to keep us all warm. We have even had years where we stayed on the beach having a grand time until one in the morning!
One year there were couples setting off lanterns, making the landscape look like something out of a painting and making our evening even more special.
The area offers lots of public amenities which helps it stand out from other beaches and hiking trails in the area – including public toilets and a vast amount of parking, costing only £2 for the whole day.
This idyllic location, where you can relax and unwind, is only just over 10 minutes away from Carden Cottages by car.
