The Berwickshire, Northumberland and North Tyneside coast is an increasingly popular location for outdoor recreation of all kinds.

We have produced the Wild Recreation Guide to provide headline messages which will allow visitors to safely and responsibly enjoy outdoor recreation in the area while avoiding impacts on the internationally important wildlife found here. We hope that you ENJOY this wonderful coastline, RESPECT other people, and help PROTECT the wildlife that makes the area so special.
