Seaburn Beach (Whitburn North)
This wide, flat, sandy beach, backed by grass, lies just under a mile north of Sunderland City Beach. The sands here are generally kept clean, although occasionally the sea deposits seaweed here in stormy weather.
The beach is popular for bathing, as well as for sailing, surfing and for other watersports.
A promenade runs alongside the beach, and makes a good place to take a stroll, heading either northwards or south towards Roker, where there is a car park and small children’s play area. There are hotels, shops and plenty of places to eat on the other side of the road to the promenade, as well as a couple of places to stop for snacks along the promenade.

Seaburn Beach (Whitburn North) Reviews
Fab beach great for walking

One of the best in the country Seaburn and Roker

This stretch of coastline is beautiful. Much underrated. Good coffee shops along promenade from Roker. Good restaurants but mostly clear wide uncluttered sands, with wonderful wild winter high tides. A long walkable pier and walks for miles along the coast.
