Sandford bay can be found at the Southern side of Peterhead near the Score building (the one that looks kinda like a huge alien spacecraft). Follow the signs that point towards the ASCO base, then turn off into the sewage works on your right and park there. Then it is just a case of walking along the rocks to the bay.

 Additional Information

Sandford is an interesting surf spot. Firstly because the bay is so deeply recessed that it is one of the few places that receives a good deal of shelter from a northerly wind. Secondly, the power station at Boddam pumps its cooling water straight into the bay making the water absolutely roasting. Even in the middle of winter you could surf with no boots or gloves!! There are a few things to beware of, including- the powerful shorebreak at high tide breaking onto hidden boulders, the multitude of seals that congregate in the bay, and the poor water quality (which should improve with the new treatment plants).
