Roker and Seaburn beaches
Visit beautiful North East beaches
Just north of Sunderland City Centre, Roker and Seaburn beaches provide a wonderful seaside playground for adults and children alike.
Closest to the city, Roker is an ideal place for water sports, with the Marine Activities Centre and other facilities close by. At the north end of the beach, the swathe of sand gives way to interesting geological structures, with rugged cliffs and 'cannonball' limestone rock formations.
Further north the wide stretch of golden sand at Seaburn and its green, traffic-free promenade are used throughout the year as both a place of play and a place of relaxation.
These award-winning beaches and their nearby parks also play host to a number of Sunderland's annual outdoor events, from the thrill of the annual international airshow, to the world music, art and theatre of the Waterfront Weekend.
