Spittal - Quay Beach
Spittal Quay lies close to the mouth of the River Tweed, immediately below Berwick-upon-Tweed. The predominantly sandy, estuary beach is backed by a grassy area and a RNLI lifeboat station can be found immediately to the west.
The closest parking is at the end of Sandstell Road. From here visitors have a choice of heading to the estuary beach, or taking the coastal footpath which heads south towards Spittal Promenade and beach. There are plenty of wading and other birds to be seen in the area and if you are lucky, you might even spot a seal bobbing about offshore as you walk down the coast.
Facilities can be found in Spittal or in the ancient town Berwick-upon-Tweed.

This is a beautiful beach for a walk. Dog friendly. Clean. Good local facilities.
We always head there when in the borders for our holidays. Our dogs love it and after our walk we head to the promenade cafe for a portion of chips.
