Embleton Bay, Craster, Alnmouth and Amble:

Northumberland’s coastline is nature’s very own breathtaking playground, where children’s imaginations can run free and grown-ups can escape!  Waves breaking, fresh sea air, the sand under your feet and stunning scenery – it’s truly a sensory delight.   Evoking such happy memories and a sense of well-being, you’ll want to return to Northumberland again and again.

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

The beach for me is always a great place to visit to feel truly relaxed and refreshed, guaranteed to make you smile! The beach is a place where I can relive my childhood memories through my own children, having fun days out on the beach building sandcastles, looking for buried treasure, paddling in the sea and finding pretty stones and shells. There are so many great beaches to choose from in the Northumberland area, you will be spoilt for choice!

Whitby West Beach:

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

The beach means so many things to me: childhood holidays with my parents, romantic walks, sunsets…

But looking out to sea can mean so many more things: hope, wonder, awe. I often think about the history on the seas and how the water and waves hide it. The sea has no memory, it is continuous and unrelenting, from the Saxons to the Vikings, to James Cook; the North East Coast has seen all of that and plenty more. It brings opportunity, discovery, hope, frailty, hostility and so much more.

“What does the beach mean to you..?”

I am a Pisces who is never far away from water, whether swimming in it or just listening to the waves washing in and out.  I married a fisherman who works off the beach.  We both love being on the beach seeing how the sand moves and changes everyday.

We especially like watching Filey Brigg in the middle of winter been pounded by the wild high waves which look like White Horses.  We are very lucky to live in the seaside town of Filey on the stunning Yorkshire Coast.
