Alnmouth Beach, Northumberland.
Alnmouth has a fine beach that is split into three distinct sections within Alnmouth Bay.
The main beach and the one used by most visitors stretches from the north side of the mouth of the River Aln, alongside the village and golf course to Marden Rocks. It is very popular with tourists and locals all year round.
To the north of Marden Rocks the beach stretches to Seaton Point. This section is popular with walkers and dog owners who reach it from both Alnmouth and Boulmer.
The least accessible but best section of beach lies to the south of the River Aln. This is a wild beach backed by high sand dunes and is used mainly by walkers who reach it from Warkworth or from a rough track behind the dunes. In strong west winds the sand is blasted from the dunes to the sea like a desert sand storm.
