Seahouses South Beach (Annstead)

Seahouses is a bustling seaside town on the Northumberland Heritage Coast.  Boat trips from the harbour take visitors on wildlife-watching trips to the Farne Islands in the hope of seeing puffins, grey seals and even dolphins.

The stretch of sandy beach to the south of the Sunderland Point is not as big as the North Beach, but it is all the same an excellent spot for rockpooling enthusiasts, being flanked on both sides by rocky outcrops. 

The beach is backed by the Annstead Dunes Nature Reserve and by a golf course.  This is a tranquil spot and is a good place to come to take in a bit of healthy sea air and shake away the cobwebs.
