Keel Head Beach (Holy Island) - Northumberland

A remote sandy beach on the northern coast of Holy Island. Sitting in the lee of Emmanuel Head the beach here is easily located by the huge white pyramid shaped navigation tower that warns shipping of the hidden reefs off the coast here.

Backed by high sand dunes this beach has a secluded feel to it and is as likely to be visited by walkers and birdwatchers as beach-goers.

As you might expect, given its wild feel, there is nothing in the way of facilities here.
