“Just like the picture! (which is mine)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Flat, easy walking, when the tide is out! Plenty bars/food in Tynemouth to warm up afterwards! The beach is often quite busy even out of season.

“Brilliant beach, especially in the winter when you can take dogs with you.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Remember your purse and have a hot chocolate at Crusoe's. if you prefer something a bit smarter, have breakfast at The Grand, or one of the many cafes in Tynemouth Village.

“Clean and spacious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Always a good place to go for a walk, whatever the season. Good in winter when there are fewer people around. Good views up and down the coast to Blyth & St. Mary's Island or south to Tynemouth priory. Plenty of teshops nearby for refreshment. Parking is very handy at the top of the promenade. Dogs only allowed on certain areas.Good access from the metro or bus too.
It blows the cobwebs away.
