Browns Bay

Visit Browns Bay

Browns Bay, located on the Tyne and Wear Coast, is a small but picturesque bay. Although there isn’t a traditional sandy beach here, the bay is a popular destination for scuba divers and snorkellers who are looking to explore the wrecks and sea life in the area.

Despite its lack of amenities, Browns Bay is a hidden gem that’s well worth a visit. The peaceful surroundings and clear waters make it a great spot to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the area.

While there are no facilities located within Browns Bay itself, the nearby village of Cullercoats offers a variety of shops, restaurants, and cafes where you can stock up on supplies and grab a bite to eat.
