The Links Beach

This expansive sandy beach is the most westerly of three on Holy Island\'s remote, north coast. It is also the most exposed, taking the brunt of the waves and weather the North Sea can throw at it.
However, if it is space you are after then there is plenty of that; when the tide goes out the beach here stretches all the way to Goswick Sands on the mainland. The island end of the beach has a slightly cosier feel as it backs up against the sand dunes and cliffs of Snipe Point. Here you will also find a plethora of rock pools when the tide goes out.
