There is a half mile stretch of fine golden sands at Longsands South backed by sand dunes, illustrating all the characteristics of a rural beach in an urban location. Due to its size, Tynemouth Longsands is very popular for those wanting to bathe, surf, play beach sports or simply relax. The beach is a real jewel which is greatly enhanced by the adjacent park, Blue Reef aquarium, toy museum and shops.
