Sand for miles and good rock pools and a lovely pub called the Ship Inn. Car parking at the top of the Hill although there is space to drop off at the beach and turn around and park.

Really good walk on a mixed morning, some sun and a few spots of rain but all in all a great time had by all.

It’s beautiful and clean in all weathers, children dogs love it. Always worth a trip. We live within 10 miles and visit often. You need a car

Beautiful beach for walking , swimming ( if brave enough to venture into the cold North Sea ). Dunstanburgh Castle at south end and Low Newton Bay at north end.

Great sands and a bit of a trip getting the car close by. Parking limited - suspect it can get very busy.

I've been coming to Embleton Bay for over 60 years and it never fails to lift my spirit - the beach is so beautiful at low or high tide overlooked by the stunning Dunstanbugh Castle. The sea is clean but cold and in Winter or...More

It is a wonderful long beach and very suitable for a run. Very very beautiful and usually very quiet. You will enjoy it.

You were right- just needed to go on through the golf course and there you are! As others have said, there are other approaches - you could try from Low Newton-by-the-Sea or from Craster and walk along the shore or just... More
