The east coast is excellant very under rated and ignored. Crimdon Dene, Blackhall Rocks and Hartlepool are beautiful beaches and never full. Dogs are allowed on the beach all years round and Crimdon Dene caravan park is lovely and the on sight cluc serves excellant meals with friendly and helpful staff.

Blackhall Rocks has a lovely beach with pebbles, sand, rock pools, caves and rock formations, what more could you want? The weather was lovely and we shared the beach with about 6 other people! There is ample parking at the site which used to be the pit, this has now been made into a nature reserve with walks along the... More

I'm a little biased as I live within a very short walking distance of a small part of the East Durham coast line which I find is a naturally relatively unspoilt tranquil seasonally changing place to be. The cliff top walk from Hawthorn Dene to Hartlepool has some spectacular scenery, hidden caves, valleys, streams and waterfalls, flora and fauna peace... More

Once a grubby and dirty coastline with great big stockpiles of coal, this coastline - now managed by the National Trust, has been transformed. It is a wonderful 11 mile walk along a magnesium limestone habitat, from Seaham to Crimdon, listening to Skylarks along the way. Nose's Point is the best place to park (free). There are a few places... More

I parked at Dawdon and walked south from Nose's Point towards Hawthorn Dene, partly along the beach, partly along the clifftop. You cannot appreciate this wonderful place without understanding its history; for 100 years, this coastline was one of the most defiled in the country, with millions of tons of mining waste being dumped on the beach and in the...

Everybody knows about the Northumberland coast and it's beauty but come a little further south and take a look at the Durham coastline, you will not be disappointed.
