What endless sand and beach, long and beautiful! It was cold and breezy but the temperature did not detract from the walk one bit. Highly recommended.

White sand and fantastic view of Dunstanburgh Castle, close enough to walk to the castle, arguably one of the loveliest beaches you'll ever see and the water is so clear. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
