A one mile walk from the nearest car parking, explains why so few visitors make it to Ross Beach.

Beautiful stretch of white sand. Lindisfarne view to the left & Bamburgh to the right. Gannets & sanderlings visible. Hardly any people. Heavenly
Wonderful beach, great for relaxing walk, Seals and Bird life are plentiful.
Not too many people either.
Amazing remote place
