A beautiful award winning beach you can visit during all weathers. The north east can be hit and miss with the weather. When it's good it's great, when it's bad, we'll still be out in it! Visited the beach yesterday and what a beautiful day. There's a mile of golden, soft sand. Perfect for sandcastle making. There's rock pools on... More

This is a great beach with a cafe at each end of the beach. Just a very short walk to Tynemouth village and the Priory and Pier. Mostly joggers, surfers and dog walkers this time of year ( May ) but as the weather warms up will be great for families and picnics.

A beautiful long and wide stretch of Blue Flag awarded beach. Suitable for all, but mainly used by joggers and dog walkers (restricted to part of the beach in summer). Easily accessible via a ramp either end. The beach also plays host to Crusoe's coffee shop at one end and The View restaurant at the other. Lots of places to... More

If you love the beach and a nice walk this is a great one to visit! Its windy though so make sure to wrap up! Lovely for couples and even going solo, great place to getaway and think. A nice long walk to the lighthouse if you're up for it, otherwise just along the main part closer to the Priory.... More

Longsands has parking at either end and a cafe and toilets at each end as well. It's a very busy Beach, especially popular with dog walkers, although they are restricted to half the beach between May and October. There is good sand to walk on, rocks to explore and beautiful views. It's a wonderful beach

A great sandy beach, with plenty of room. At low tide, there is a reef that gets exposed at the North end of the beach. It was good fun bolder hopping along it. Keep an eye on the tide coming in though. Apparently there are really good waves for surfing here too. I didn't see any during my 3 day... More
