Photos of Goswick Sands, North Northumberland Coast.
These photos are from Goswick Sands on the North Northumberland Coast. This is a vast stretch of beach at low tide which really has to be visited to appreciate the scale of the place.
A word of warning - if you visit this beach you really should check the tide times carefully - we would not advise walking here when the tide is coming in as the sands are very flat.

Near the low tide mark the sands turn to a vivid orange colour.
At this point the sand look as smooth as a giant sheet of sandpaper.
Almost at the water's edge - not a place to get caught out when the tide turns.

An object resembling the Trojan Horse (depending on your imagination) in the sea.
