Season: summer

Craster is popular for fishing from the piers and is well known for its harbour.  Sea fishing trips can also be arranged in season,  The beach is rocky and made up of shingle, but it’s a short walk south from here to the exquisite Sugar Sands, a hidden gem.. The village has all the facilities a visitor might need, including parking.  This stretch of coastline is excellent for walking, with St Oswald’s Way leading south to Cullernose Point from here. Dunstanburgh Castle can be seen to the north.
