Duridge Bay Country Park

Druridge Bay is a stunning seven mile stretch of sand from Amble to Cresswell and is a popular place to ride, cycle walk, paddle and surf. It has all the amenities you need to enjoy a day at the coast with toilets, cafe and children's play area.

Today it is very peaceful with just the sound of the surf and seabirds, but the beach has a fascinating and varied past. In the 19th century coal was mined nearby. During World War II Druridge Bay was thought of as a possible landing place for a German invasion and the anti-tank blocks and pill boxes that were constructed to defend our shores can still be seen.

The park is centred on a lake with surrounding meadows and woods which has been restored from an old opencast coal mine and is maturing into a very pleasant landscape for walks and picnics. In addition there are 3 miles of high-quality beach and sand-dunes which offer ample space to get away from it all.

Facilities include a visitor centre with information, toilets, a cafe and gift shop (open most weekends and school holidays), activities, water sports, bird-watching, walks, orienteering and cycling. There are also a series of smaller nature reserves - home to everything from a resident herd of swans to rare birds like the Golden Eye Snipe.

There are current plans to improve Druridge further and turn it into a nationally renowned wildlife tourism destination.
