Club Sea Paddle-Beadnell to Dunstanburgh Castle, June 2009


The weather was superb and the sea conditions perfect for sea paddling. We paddled from Beadnell Harbour to Dunstanburgh Castle a journey of about 7 nautical miles. Calling in at Newton on the return we stopped for lunch. Beadnell Bay has a wonderful sandy beach stretching as far as Newton Point. Newton Haven has rocky outcrops at its entrance which shelters the beach. Paddling across Embleton Bay, Dunstanburgh Castle is visible perched on the sea cliffs of Castle Point. The sea conditions at this point can sometimes be quite intimidating with large swells apparent in certain sea states. This paddle is ideal for paddlers building their logbook for the 3-Star Sea Kayaking Award.
