  • Simply stunning beach and when you need a snack there are many places in the area such as crusoes cafe located directly on the beach, or the pub behind the grand hotel. 
  • I will journey some and do a long trip to cover the north and south of were I live. This is a nice beach and has the Tynemouth Priory and Castle, that is worth seeing. 
  • If you like serene walks, dramatic sunsets, clouds and moonlight... Romantic views and a quiet beach do visit this one.
