If you want to see the most beautiful complete castle then this is the beach for you. Easy to park and walk down to the sands, miles of unspoilt golden sandy beaches, dog friendly this is my absolute favourite beach !

The beach is long, wide and sandy. There are excellent views along the coastline and looking back up at the castle. Good facilities in the village nearby and parking is available. On a summers day this is a beach to go to and enjoy.

A great walk through sand dunes to a glorious long sandy beach. Our top tip is to avoid the busier area near the castle and drive a little south to park (£2 charge up to 1600 in high season).

Accessed via the large village green, this beach is lovely. A wide expanse of firm, clean, golden sand that stretches for miles

St Aiden is simply a wonderful beach. The sand is near-white and always spotlessly clean, and the fact that there are virtually no pebbles makes it extremely pleasant to walk on. It is dog-friendly and there is plenty of space for games and activities. To...More

It seems obvious, but if you are after a sandy beach with plenty of space, then St Aiden beach delivers. There are no additional facilities on the beach, which in many ways is a good thing. Bring with you what you need and you will...More

I did not see any evidence of BBQ. I would consult Northumberland Council to get an opinion.

Hi Michael The access to the beach is not good for a wheelchair. There is a boardwalk for part of the way from the green but petters out once you reach the dunes. Hope you enjoy your visit and your son does too.

No not really but the walk back through the soft sand on the dunes acted as a mini pedicure, very very clean beach
