South Gare is an area of Redcar beach located by breakwater on the southern side of the mouth of the river Tees. The land here is all reclaimed and was created using waste from the local steel industry.
Now the industry has largely gone the area has become a haven for wildlife with a variety of habitats attracting a wide range of birds.
The wide sandy beach is suitable for windsurfing and kite-surfing. It is also a popular angling spot. Fishing is best off the end of South Gare breakwater and this is also a good spot to watch ships coming and going.
