Newbiggin-by-the-Sea is a small coastal town in the South East Northumberland. The town is famous for its revamped beach, which eroded badly during recent decades but underwent a massive redevelopment in 2007. That year, more than 500,000 tonnes of sand were brought up the coast from Skegness and placed on the beach. Why not make the most of your visit and stay in a Newbiggin bed and breakfast.
Concrete steps and barriers have been set in place to protect the new beach. Part of the project includes a new breakwater, graced with a sculpture called The Couple by artist Sean Henry. The project was a bid to restore Newbiggin’s coast to its glory days, when golden sands attracted visitors to the little resort, and has been a hit with residents and visitors alike. There are plenty of Newbiggin Self Catering properties to choose from in this beautiful coastal area of Northumberland. Be sure to take a visit to the newly opened Newbiggin Maritime Centre and learn about the history and heritage of Newbiggin.
The town attracts nature lovers who come to watch the North Sea seabird passage during the autumn and spring. It is also home to a seaside links golf course that is open year-round.
