 With Amble being built on a point of land between Druridge and Alnmouth bay the views north and south are great. This is a view from the south

 Other notes

Historically Amble was involved with the coal mining nearby at Hauxley. From here coal would leave aboard colliers. Timber which was needed in great amounts within the pits would be landed at Amble.

Coquet Island, just off the Amble coast has a lighthouse with connections going back to Grace Darling and her family. You can take a boat trip over to the Island with puffin cruises.  They say that there are over 40,000 nesting birds on Coquet Island and some 400 residential grey seals.
