“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.
