The beach and dunes are absolutely incredible. The beach is long and wide and wonderful sand, the dunes have pathways running hither. A great place to walk whatever the weather.

A great beach just north of Bamburgh with great views of Holy Island. Very exposed so dress well on windy days.

Great views to Holy Island. Long, sweeping beach. Definitely worth a visit. There is also a circular walk.

Don’t tell anyone but this beach is AMAZING. It’s down a track by a farm , you park on the road side. The beach is breathtaking and so quiet, it’s truly a hidden gem, just don’t tell anyone.
