The Links, Whitley Bay, NE26

Here you'll find a one-and-a-half-mile stretch of golden sand, punctuated by several rocky outcrops, ideal for rock pooling and backed by many leisure amenities. The southern stretch has Blue Flag status while at the northern end is St Mary's Island, a visitor centre and nature reserve.
