Visit Ross Back Sands
Ross Back Sands is an unspoilt sandy beach between Holy Island and Budle Bay and part of Lindisfarne National Nature Reserve. This beach on the beautiful Northumberland coast is a nature lovers and bird watchers paradise.
It is mostly quiet, even on a sunny day, so a great place to enjoy the solitude. There are no facilities here, so make sure you bring snacks and a drink.
Ideal for hiking, you can take the coastal footpaths and enjoy the views of Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island to the North and Bamburgh Castle to the south. You can often spot seals and nesting sea birds along the beach.
Look out for the signs, there are seasonal restrictions for dog walkers in place to protect rare nesting seabirds.
Stay in a self-catering holiday cottage or a nearby camping park.

Getting To Ross Back Sands
Look out for a blue sign (Click here for the streetview) requesting visitors to the beach not to park any further. So you have to park on the side and walk past Lindisfarne Oysters and cottages about a mile to the beach.
