Newburgh (sometimes called Newburgh on Ythan) is a coastal village at the mouth of the River Ythan on Aberdeenshire's east coast midway between Aberdeen and Peterhead. The area is dominated by fine sand-dunes including the Sands of Forvie which have been designated as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC).

It is claimed that the nearby Forvie Nature Reserve has the biggest population of eider ducks in the world.

Beside the beach in Newburgh is an eighteen hole golf course with a spectacular bird shaped clubhouse and restaurant.
