Season: summer

Tynemouth beach, known as Longsands, is long and expansive enough for an “away from it all” walk by the sea.  Comprising more than a mile of golden sand, this Blue Flag beach is a popular surfing destination too.  The setting is wonderful, with particularly strong views to the north.  The water quality is excellent and there’s a promenade for beach side strolls.  Behind the beach are all the facilities you might need, including cafes and even deckchair hire.  Highly recommended.
