Craster Beach



Craster is a small fishing village on the Northumbrian coast with a small and attractive harbour. The harbour itself is protected by two areas of rocks, known as Muckle Car and Little Car.

Craster is not so much a beach but a rocky shore with a view northwards to the spectacular ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle. This is the nearest point of access to the castle and the 1.5 mile approach must be made on foot along a grassy path.
