Visit Holy Island The Links
The Links on Holy Island is a large stretch of sandy beach on the north coast of the island, at low tide, stretches up to Goswick Sands on the mainland. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the coastal wildlife.
Did you Know? The Island is steeped in history, and Saint Aidan established the first English Diocese here in AD635. The castle on the island is privately owned but can be visited, and was built in around 1550.
Responsible dog owners are welcome on the reserve – this includes keeping dogs on a lead or at heel at all times (even on the beaches) to avoid disturbance to our birds and grazing livestock. It’s one of our byelaws, which are there to protect the reserve.
