Access to the beach

Access from our storage centre takes you through the dunes to the beach.

Please be aware the equipment available may change as we sometimes move equipment between sites.


Public toilet facilities are available in both Church Street & Links car park. Both have a disabled toilet operated by radar key.


Dogs are welcomed on the beach all year round. For detailed information you can check Northumberland County Council Website Opens in a new window.
