South Gare

Visit South Gare

South Gare just North of Redcar is a reclaimed man made beach.  The beach was constructed between 1866 – 1888, its 2.5 miles long and contains around 5 million tons of slag from the local blast furnaces, which once populated the area.

Today this beautiful stretch of coast is home to an abundance of wildlife and the South Gare and Coatham Dunes.

There is a small car park close to the beach for visitors.

This beach is …

  • Dog friendly with restrictions during the summer
  • Great for families

Have a great day out along the coast.
