The Marina, can organise trips across the Bay to the other side as well as hiring out canoes and paddle boards. They also organise whale watching and Dolphin trips on their super fast hi-speed ribs, great fun! All these activities are best booked in advance. They have added on an ice cream parlour too this year, with an amazing variety of flavours!

One of the best cafes for miles, (covid restrictions have changed the business for the moment) has now evolved into a great wee store, with all sorts of fresh and dried goods, still does great fresh breads, takeaway coffees and food, be there early if you want to get great takeaway cakes. We can only hope that one day the cafe is back, it’s known in summer months to do great takeaway pizzas on occasion!

This is a lovely coastal walk from Findhorn, you can walk along the beach at low tide or follow the path, stunning views of the Moray firth up to the top of Scotland on a sunny day! You will see tank blocks left over from WW2 on the beach, Seals are often spotted and occasionally a pod of Dolphins passes by!
