Budle – Popular with bird watchers for the abundant bird-life, and Kite-boarders for the wide, open water. When the wind is right, you will be hard pushed to get parked on the road verge.

Bamburgh – The famous Castle makes one of the most stunning backdrops to any beach you may ever visit. The surfing on the main beach is good through most stages of the tide and sandbars and reefs spring into life on the right swell.

Seahouses – St Aidans beach on the North side of the village is open and has excellent views of the nearby Farne Islands. The rocky shoreline to the south leading to the harbour provides some good waves at high tide and the main beach can produce good conditions on a South swell, though the offshore islands block a lot of northerly and westerly swell.

South of the village just past the Golf Club, opposite Annstead Farm, is the small but pristine ‘golf club’ beach. Often fickle, but worth checking, can produce good waves when its big elsewhere.

Beadnell – The fingers of rock that stretch between Seahouses and Beadnell provide a stunning collection of reef and rock landscapes. Snorkeling is a recommendation all down this stretch of the coast.

Once you reach Beadnell Point, the huge expanse of Beadnell Bay opens up before you and the rock is replaced with golden sands as far as the eye can see. The boat-launching facilities along with the popularity of the Bay mean there is always something going on here, from Surfing, Kiteboarding, Wakeboarding, sailing, diving, fishing windsurfing and more…

Newton – Beadnell Bay reaches all the way south to the north end of Newton. The Bay at this south end is much more open and faces east, gathering much more swell and can often be much quieter, away from Beadnell village. If you walk south along the coast, through Football Hole, you’ll reach the beaches and reefs of Low Newton, popular with walkers, bird watchers and watersports uses.

Embleton – Walking round the point from Low Newton brings you to the dramatic Embleton Bay, with the backdrop of Dunstanburgh Castle to the south. This large open beach pick-up lots of swell and can provide good conditions throughout the tide.
