Family friendly, with lots of activities on offer, surfing, kayaking, Restaurant open all year round, ideal for a break from those waves. Dogs not allowed on part of the beach from April till September so be aware... More

Walk along this beach at least once a week , it's a shame they close half of it off to dogs in the summer as reonsible dog owners clear up dog poo and take it away . Each time you go the tide has changed the rocks or the sand so it's different each time you go ! Crusoes cafe... More

The longsands are clean despite lots of dogs being around. I visited on a sunny day, good for sunbathing, paddling and watching the surfers. Lifeguards were on duty and I saw a couple of litter pickers.

I was impressed with how clean this beach is and how much it's looked after by local authority. Would certainly visit again.

Stunning! Great for an early morning run, a lazy day on the beach, or a fun filled day of water sports. The children love this beach and despite the freezing water, always insist on a swim.

Beautiful beach just 9 miles out of Newcastle. Large swathes of clean golden sand. Awarded blue flag status. Nice cafe at the Tynemouth end with another now being built at the Cullercoats end. Big enough to be safe for families with the benefit of lifeguards during the summer months. Well known to the surfing fraternity. Surf and paddle board schools... More

A wonderful beach. Made a lovely walk with a friend on a still and foggy evening in July 2015. The beach is huge and you immediately want to run down to the water, take your shoes and socks off, dig your toes into the sand and check out the water temperature. The ocean seems endless and truly mesmerizing. You just... More
