  • Great venue Fabulous views Great selection of coffee shops Council seats for watching the sea and hopefully seeing the dolphins  more »
  • Canny walk from the harbour to the cliffs at Seaburn and return. Good, sanely priced coffee takeaways too. We try and time our walk for low tide to avoid crowded walkways. There are 5 public toilets.....  more »
  • One of my Favourite stretches of local coastline. Very rarely visit South Shields coast as they've ruined the drive with 6 million speed bumps and its lit up like Christmas with so many street lights you've got no chance of seeing the stars from there or Roker (same problem with the lights unfortunately) Still love our coastline in the day light though, it's stunning
  • Arguably one of the North East's best family-friendly beaches considering the shelter offered to the sea by Roker Pier. Even upon a blustery day, the waves are gentle. The sand is clean and golden. The pier, of course, offers a great walk from here. Just behind this pretty beach are numerous cafes and small gardens tastefully and imaginatively planted with ornamental grasses. The whole scene is one of imaginative cohesion. Other town planners would do well to visit and take note!!
