Must see · Water Body · Hidden Gem · Beach
At Embleton Bay, walk along the seemingly endless sandy beach past the skeletal ruins of a 14th-century castle watching birds. Nestled in a sheltered bay, this pristine, gently curving beach remains popular with windsurfers, wildlife lovers, and families. At low tide, swarming sea life fills a number of rock pools kids will love to explore. Low sand dunes in the backdrop, dotted with plants and quaint wooden bungalows from the 1930s, offer views of the sea and perfect photo opportunities. After the walk, relax over a glass of ale in one of the pubs in the medieval village of Embleton. Make Embleton Bay a centerpiece of your Alnwick vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Alnwick travel planner.

  • We walked from Beadnell to Craster and crossed Embleton Bay. It is always stunning along here with views of Dunstanburgh Castle. If you would like more details of my walk you can read it on my blog.....  more »
  • Craster to Low Newton makes a lovely walk, along white, sandy beaches and across dunes, taking in the wildly romantic Dunstanburgh Castle ruin from all angles. The walk is only marred, in my opinion.....  more »
