Embleton Bay

An exhilarating walk from Craster (North) or Embleton (South)

With the backdrop of Dunstanburgh Castle, this fine sandy beach is one of the most spectacular in England. It's popular for paddling and gives some good surf conditions.


Crime writer Val McDermid has chosen our Newton Pool walk as her favourite in the country. Click on the link below to see why.

You can also walk from Craster to Newton or try our brand new Easy walk.
