The Northumbrian coast around Dunstanbugh to Amble has many great beaches, but the one just north of Dunstanburgh Castle is one of the best. Embleton Bay is owned by the National Trust, and features a beautiful, unspoiled sandy beach. You park along the roadside behind...More

Beautiful spot, if you go on a cloudless sunny day it's like being in the carribean.But to see it in its true beauty it needs to be on a sunny day when you can really see the sea blue.

What a fantastic beach, unspoilt sandy beach with 180 degree views. It starts off with a walk across Dunstanburgh golf course over the sand dunes then on to the beach, you just seem to carry on walking and walking.

We were staying nearby and used the beach for a walk with the dogs each day. You have to know the tides as it does come in quite a way and although you won't get cut off it does make walking a bit difficult. However...More
