Seaton Sluice Beach (Collywell Bay)

Seaton Sluice is a coastal village at the mouth of the Seaton Burn. It has a small, sleepy harbour and a number of pubs, shops and places to eat.
The wide, sandy beach just north of here forms the southern end of a long strip of sand, backed by grassy dunes, which links Seaton Sluice to Blyth.
A path leads through the dunes, where a variety of plant and animal life can be spotted.
On the other side of the harbour mouth is Collywell Bay, a mixture of sand and rocks backed by a high wall. This is a popular spot with anglers.
Activities here include bathing and surfing, but generally this is a quiet spot, especially on weekdays.
Parking spots can usually be found along the A193, adjacent to the dunes. There is a car park with toilets by the roundabout where the A190 intersects with the A193.
