South Shields is a beautiful town on the Tyne’s South bank with idyllic sandy beaches, twisting cliff-top paths, exhilarating amusements and miles and miles of natural beauty.
Blue Flag award-winning Sandhaven Beach, with its backdrop of dunes, is one of the finest beaches in the UK, whilst Littlehaven beach, with its panoramic views of the harbour and Tynemouth Priory and Castle across the mouth of the Tyne is an ideal spot for sailing, windsurfing and angling. A place for all seasons with plenty of fun.
Walk along the promenade, stop off for a drink or a meal at one of the seafront hotels or pubs, or enjoy an ice cream. Visit North & South Marine Park, with a boating lake, miniature steam railway, bowling greens and an amazing gathering of swans and ducks which make it a favourite families and the perfect spot for a gentle walk. If you're looking for more hustle and bustle you can enjoy all the fun of the fair at Ocean Beach Pleasure Park where you’ll find an exciting choice of white knuckle thrillers, colourful and imaginative rides for younger children plus amusements and video games.
Over time the mighty waves of the great North Sea have carved out caves, cliffs and stacks, leaving breathtaking Marsden Bay dominated by one of the most magnificent rock formations in Britain – and a great place to explore! The area is home to thousands of kittiwakes, gulls and cormorants and nearby The Leas, a two mile grassy sweep, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
