We've visited this beach many times as we live very close to Longsands. Always a special place no matter what the weather. Fresh air. Open space. Feeling of freedom. Should be visited if in the area. Highly recommended.

A long beach with church and priory views (well, and wind farm and container ship views!) on the cold north sea! One of the better of the urban beaches with two eateries (one at either end).
