Pleasant beach

Long beach with clean sand. Popular with families and dog walkers.

Great Beach
Sep 2021 • Family
This beach has finally reached its long awaited potential. It’s family (and dog friendly, in season). There are food venues both on and adjacent to it. There is a thriving surf and paddle boarding scene and has never been more attractive to both locals and visitors alike.

Absolutely Huge, Crowd-Dispersing Beach.
Aug 2021
Even upon the hottest, busiest day the crowds can disperse upon this vast expanse of golden sand. It is safe, clean and family-friendly with plenty of parking close by. If you fancy a short walk whilst here, other smaller bays are nearby as is the castle, pier and Tyne riverside promenade.

Top class beach
Jul 2021 • Friends
This is one of my favourite beaches.

The views above and beach and on the beach are great and when the sun sets it is something else.

Atmosphere is really nice and beach is really clean and tidy. No litter which is good.

Would definitely recommend as I think it’s one of the best beaches in the north east.

Really nice sandy beach
May 2021 • Family
Best to travel here by Metro or bus as roads can be busy and parking is not free. Really nice sandy beach. Has been getting the Blue Flag award for water quality for many years and again in 2021. Popular but doesn’t get too crowded. RNLI lifeguards help keep it safe . My kids are learning to surf here.

This is on the NORTH SEA so be prepared for cold and windy conditions even in summer.

The locals put a lot of effort into keeping it safe and clean so if you visit bring a big bin bag and TAKE YOUR RUBBISH HOME

This is a great beach and perfect to spend the day.

Long Sands beach is a wonderful stretch of sand to stroll or spend the day. I have been coming here for years and it never fails to impress, more so on a hot day. Great place for family days out, picnics or relaxing.

Clean, sandy beach
Jun 2021
This is a lovely clean, sandy beach in a sheltered cove overlooked by the castle & priory. There are lots of steps however! It was very busy on the hot Sunday when we visited. Snack bar and ice-creams available nearby!

Great beach
Sep 2020 • Family
This is a fantastic and very clean beach. Good sand for sandcastles, plenty of space and also streams draining off the sand for the little ones to play in.
