Beadnell Bay boasts some of the clearest waters in England as well as some excellent wave sailing conditions in W winds and shallow waters, which means beginners and intermediates can use the N end of the beach. In NNE it also produces good waves and SW are flat water winds. There are one or two rocky areas exposed at low tide. This spot offers some stronger winds than other areas along the same stretch of coast, as there is no wind shadow near the beach.
