A golden stretch of sandy beach backed by a system of sand dunes, which are a haven for wildlife and a designated area of Special Nature Conservation.
Bathing is a popular pastime here in the summer, whilst the waves bring surfers to the area too. The beach also has a zone for water sports, such as jet skiing and a yachting club. Lucky visitors may spot marine wildlife such as dolphins, seals or porpoises from the beach, as they are known to frequent the area. A pier marking the mouth of the River Blyth and the wall of Blyth Harbour sit at the northern end of the beach.
