About Druridge Bay Country Park

Druridge Bay is a living landscape, rich in wildlife and with big plans for the future. The bay is a stunning seven mile stretch of sand running from Amble to Cresswell and is a popular place to ride, cycle, walk, paddle and surf. Today there is just the sound of the surf and seabirds, but the beach has a fascinating and varied past. Within the park you will also find a series of smaller nature reserves home to everything from a resident herd of swans to rare birds like the Golden Eye Snipe.
