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.

Excellent beach

This is an excellent expanse of golden sand to the north of the river Tyne bordering Tynemouth. The beach is large and popular serving locals and day trippers (the metro system stops at Tynemouth). If you are driving, observe the permit and payment system to protect spaces for local residents. Or get a ticket!!

On Monday I had an alternative start to the week, with a beach walk with my team to clear our heads before looking at our purpose and vision. It was a great start to the week.

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.

Been going to tynemouth for 50 years now and had no problem untill today weather was not so good so got fish and chips and went to park on the coast but never seen much of it due to the weather so decided to drive along not so easy now only drive one way on a limited road due too council puting a cycle route in place what a farce seen more of housing estate than the coast not as if i could cycle it as for weather only seen one bike some one needs to tell council its not europe weather here dont need a cycle lane along our coast . People who live along there must be hopping mad about this got to go all round the houses to get back to were they live . COUNCIL GET RID NOW !

We love taking our dog to Tynemouth most weekends.
When the tide is out, the beach is huge. ( Check tide times before walk).
There are usually lots of people with their friendly and sociable dogs on this beach at weekends.
The beach is very clean. There are always lots of surfers in the sea.
A restaurant at either end too.

What a beautiful beach of soft golden sand. There's beach wardens making sure the beach is tidy and safe. There are several life guards watching the brave swimmers and surfers. There are safe flags marked out at the shoreline. There's a surf board hire shop and a lovely beachfront cafe called Crusoes.

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.

Large well maintained stretch of clean sand. Very popular so it can get busy in peak periods.
A good place to visit if you are on a city break in nearby Newcastle and fancy a change of scenery.

Tynemouth has so much to offer I’m surprised it isn’t more widely known. Stunning beaches like this really are the jewel in Gosforths coast. Also the adjoining beach is beautiful and clean.

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!
