Runswick Sands is a sheltered sandy beach with rock pools either side of the bay at Runswick, although you have no beach at high tide.
The beach is in front of a charming village built into the steep hillside which includes a sailing club as well as a number of pleasure and fishing boats. Ideal for families and walkers.
The bay also has the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat (RBRB).
Pay and display car park, toilets, cafe, shop, pub and slip way. Note that it is a steep road down from the car park to the beach.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for Runswick Sands Beach.
