The bay's beautiful expanse of smooth sand is the perfect place for a therapeutic, head-clearing hoof.
There are slopes/ramps leading to the beach as well as steps. The latter provide a good workout for the thighs!
I love strolling here whatever the weather, as the air is forever fresh and revitalising.
Such a simple pleasure year round, and one to treasure.

There is plenty to interest a visitor of any age here. Lots of old and very ancient relics, modern warfare items and locations and a well stocked shop. There are also some fascinating old gravestones. The views are superb. The site has places to sit and relax. Altogether very good value.

Of course, as a northern English urban beach there are certain things that must be expected. Its usually cold, and the water is always cold! There are ships, wind farms and urban activity in sight.
All that said, this is an impressive little cove with the priory on the hill, rocks to clamber at the southern end, nice sand, a little waterfall/trickle on the southern end and of course the superb looking Rileys fish shack which has some fire pits and blankets going on the beach on a 12 degree October day.

Kids loved it - spending most of the time on the inflatable slides and other inflatable equipment (3.50 for unlimited time).
They didn't play crazy golf, but enjoyed looking at the dinosaurs there, including the ones who squirt unsuspecting players with jets of water!
Didn't go in the pirate maze but looked pretty good.
Slides/inflatable area close if there's been much rain, so I gather. There aren't any indoor/wet weather options.

My wife and brother in law are descendants of Cuthbert Collingwood and we all were delighted with the monument which is not only impressive but commands a grand view of the mouth of the Tyne. It is well worth a visit. Parking is just below the monument and access is by a path leading from the car park up to it.

If you're into this kind of thing, I would definitely recommend popping in. The guys who run the place are absolutely lovely and have such passion for their work. Not only is there plenty of interesting articles on display, it is very warming to meet the men who protect the people of Tynemouth. They don't get payed for their work, nor are they thanked particularly often, but they certainly deserve to be.

Surfing on Longsands. We operate a Surf School and Surf Club on Tynemouth Longsands beach situated at the bottom of the ramp next to Crusoe’s cafe. Our surf instructors are fully qualified lifeguards and are qualified with either the Academy of Surfing instructors or SurfingGB coaching certificates. All equipment is supplied, surfboards, wetsuits, boots and gloves if needed, all you need to bring is swimwear and a towel.
Just back from the beach with my two boys who loved their first surf lesson. Barry and the team are excellent and guiding the kids as they learn. All safety aspects covered well and everything made to feel like fun. Two hours of excellent value for a group children's lesson. Loaned equipment was good quality and took the time to make sure that everything fitted. I don't think you could find a better first surf lesson anywhere in the world!
