Amble Beaches, Northumberland.
There are two main beaches at Amble separated by a headland and rocks at Pan Point.
The beach that many visitors will see is the small sandy beach between the pier and promenade. Known locally as the "Little Shore" it is well used but can have a lot of "flotsam" washed up by the tide after stormy weather and high tides.
A much larger beach is at Amble Links, between the town and Low Hauxley. Backed by large dunes, this beach is popular with walkers and dog owners.
This beach provides great views of Coquet Island with its lighthouse, famous for having been manned by the brother of Grace Darling, the famous Northumbrian Heroine.
Another small beach nestles between Pan Point. and Wellhaugh Point.
