Cullercoats is a sandy bay enclosed by small piers and as such is an
excellent environment for family use. The south of the bay is a
launching area for local fishing boats and leisure craft. The beach is
backed by cliffs, which contain interesting geological features. A
marine laboratory, working Victorian Lifeboat Station and Fisherman's
Watch House. All of these facilities/features are seen in the work of
the famous American artist Winslow Homer.
