Sandhaven Beach, South Shields

Sand dunes

This is the view of Sandhaven Beach, South Shields from the wooden deck at the rear of the Marsden Rattler pub and restaurant. The expansive decking has been erected to provide a pleasant beach side al fresco eating area, which is very popular during the summer months. If you open the map link you should be able to see the old rolling stock which is now being used as dining rooms.

Special hardy grasses have been planted to protect the dunes in an effort to prevent the landward migration of the beach!

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28 mm lens, 1/500 second, f8.0, iso 200

  3. Would love to see it thronging with people in summer as well. A Mediterranean feel in the NE of England.
