Beaches

Amble has a beautiful sandy beach stretching south from Pan Point down to Hauxley and towards Druridge Bay. This beach gives superb views towards Coquet Island. There is also a small beach adjacent to the harbour known locally as 'The Little Shore'.

 

 
The Silver Anniversary Edition of the Good Beach Guide, launched in May 2012 by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS), has recommended Amble Links, Warkworth, Druridge Bay North and Druridge Bay South beaches as having excellent water quality.
 
 
 
 
 
Warkworth Golf Club
 
Warkworth is a seaside links course designed by ‘Old Tom Morris’ in 1891. The course is without a doubt one of Northumberland’s truly hidden gems. It is a very interesting and testing course in idyllic surroundings offering stunning beauty with outstanding views of the Northumberland coastline and countryside. Warkworth Castle can be seen from the course as well as the Carr Rocks and Coquet Island. A development sponsored by the Environment Agency has created a wetland bird habitat enabling the club to feature a large pond behind the first green, adding to the attractive views across the old river bed.
 

The course has 9 greens, but the construction of 18 tees means a varied and a different challenge at each hole. There is a practice area available to members and visitors. Due to its proximity to the North Sea, it is no surprise that the course is very rarely closed and is usually playable all year round, with the regular greens in play during the winter season. The winterised course (in play from early October to late March) uses only 9 tees, which are often in quite different and difficult locations from the summer tees. The gents summer and winter courses have an EGU rating for handicapping purposes. (White Medal Tees SSS 70, Yellow Tees SSS 68, Winter Course SSS 68).

Visitors are welcome except on club competitions days - Tuesdays and Saturdays and the Club Steward provides an excellent all-year round catering service including Sunday lunches.

Duridge Bay Country Park
 
Druridge Bay is a stunning seven mile stretch of sand from Amble to Cresswell and is a popular place to ride, cycle walk, paddle and surf. It has all the amenities you need to enjoy a day at the coast with toilets, cafe and children's play area.

Today it is very peaceful with just the sound of the surf and seabirds, but the beach has a fascinating and varied past. In the 19th century coal was mined nearby. During World War II Druridge Bay was thought of as a possible landing place for a German invasion and the anti-tank blocks and pill boxes that were constructed to defend our shores can still be seen.

The park is centred on a lake with surrounding meadows and woods which has been restored from an old opencast coal mine and is maturing into a very pleasant landscape for walks and picnics. In addition there are 3 miles of high-quality beach and sand-dunes which offer ample space to get away from it all.

Facilities include a visitor centre with information, toilets, a cafe and gift shop (open most weekends and school holidays), activities, water sports, bird-watching, walks, orienteering and cycling. There are also a series of smaller nature reserves - home to everything from a resident herd of swans to rare birds like the Golden Eye Snipe.

There are current plans to improve Druridge further and turn it into a nationally renowned wildlife tourism destination.
