Always a nice stroll to blow the cobwebs away. Been visiting here for a number of years now. If you've the energy it is a nice 2 hour stroll all the way to Tynemouth if the tide is out.

I spent just one day there, with the promenade still in construction and the Spanish City not ready yet, but I can honestly say the beach walk was really good and, weather permitting, you can enjoy yourself there really well.

A nice place to visit foe a short while, in the process of being modernised, great views from the Premier Inn by the beach.

We had a lovely walk on the links stopping for refreshment at a great cafe overlooking the bay . Watched the children play on the scooter park and walked the full length of the front. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon.

Never been to Whitley Bay before. Lots of work been done & being done on the Promenade, new bits very nice, old bits look bit tatty in comparison. Lots of seaside fish & chip shops, ice cream shops etc. If you want a “traditional” day...More

"Storm Emma" and the "Beast from the East" have both washed away all the sand for the whole length of Whitley Bay beach leaving rocks, stones and tons and tons of sea weed.

Great day today. First bit of sun after the horrible weather we've been suffering. Beautifully laid out open spaces with a few places to refuel on the walk. The air of course is clean healthy and invigorating.

The beaches in this area are wonderful and Whitley Bay is no exception. Very clean and well cared for.

The promenade is beautiful with good sandy walks along the shore and a pavement for those who prefer a firmer footing. The only downside is the upgrading work which seems to be taking ages to complete.

Sorry, I don't live in Whitley Bay so I'm not sure when the market is on.
