Druridge Bay (South)

Druridge Bay (South) - Northumberland

Druridge Bay is the seven-mile long stretch of coastline, backed by an extensive dune system, between Amble in the north and Creswell in the south.  This beach forms the section at the southern end of the bay, closest to Cresswell. The Blackemoor Burn runs into the sea here, from a body of water, which attracts some interesting bird life. A section of flat rocks, known as The Scars lies just off the beach. 

The beach is used by walkers and watersport enthusiasts, as well as families, who come to enjoy playing on the wide expanse of golden sand exposed at low tide.

Parking can be found on the coast road heading north out of Creswell.  There is an ice-cream shop close by, as well as a cafĂ©.
