Set on the southern edge of Druridge Bay is Cresswell beach. The sandy beach here is one of the best on the Northumberland coast.
The gently sloping sand is backed by extensive sand dunes and can seem to go on forever at low tide. At this state of tide there are also a few rocky patches are exposed - these offer some great rockpooling.
The beach at Cresswell never really gets busy and is largely unspoilt. Except for the height of the summer there is a fair chance you will only see the occasional dog walker.
