"You should have seen her little face when she watched the tide coming in. Can’t tell you what it means to be able to get her down on the beach again."


You will find us in Beadnell Station Road car park at the north end of Beadnell Bay. Our storage is in the facilities block but you will collect equipment from KA Adventure Sports who are also based in the car park. You will spot their containers and friendly faces! Generally equipment at this site needs to be booked in advance.

Access to the beach

There is ramp access directly from the car park onto the beach. While the beach shelves slightly towards the sea it is relatively flat and sandy for the full length of it.

When the tide is high there can be very little beach to make use of, so it’s always advisable to check the tides before you come. You can do this using The Beach Guide website Opens in a new window.

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

Dogs are welcomed on the beach all year round but some restrictions may apply during bird breeding season where dogs must be kept on a lead. For detailed information you can check check Northumberland County Council Website Opens in a new window.
