Newbiggin by the Sea Beach
Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Beach is a historic and revitalized coastal area, offering a blend of natural beauty and cultural heritage. The beach is notable for its distinctive art installations, including the "Couple" sculpture by artist Sean Henry, which stands on a platform in the sea and is visible from the shore. It features a mixture of sand and shingle, making it suitable for beach activities, leisurely walks, and enjoying the sea views. The promenade along the beach is well-maintained, providing easy access to local amenities, cafes, and the Maritime Centre, which celebrates the town's seafaring history.
