Scuba Diving Northeast England, UK, Europe

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Beadnell Point

Location: Beadnell, North Northumberland

Description: Craggy bit of land extending out to sea for about 350 metres

Depth: 3 - 12 metres (10 - 40 feet)

Visibility: Up to 10 metres during summer months (30 feet)

Rating: ****

Difficult access at low tide from the north side where the wall is. Remains of the MV Yewglen away from wall base, plus the remains of an old steamer with lots of kelp. Plenty of crabs, lobster and small fish, but decent cod can also be found in the overhangs. Care should be taken if surfacing near the end of the reef, because tides are too strong to swim against on big tides.

The south side of Beadnell Point slopes down to around 10m where lots of smaller reefs can be found holding lobsters and cod can be 'seen'.

Easier access via a boat but still remains a enjoyable shore dive. Remains of the Yewglen are visible, but be careful when putting anchors down as these can become trapped beneath the sharp plates. Not as many lobsters as the burn cars but lots of fish are visible, and is not the most strenuous of dives but be careful when getting to the end of the point as currents can become strong.
