The Northumberland Coast is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) covering 100 miles of coastline from Berwick-Upon-Tweed to the River Coquet estuary in the Northeast of England. Features include: Alnmouth, Bamburgh, Beadnell, Budle Bay, Cocklawburn Beach, Craster, Dunstanburgh Castle, the Farne Islands, Lindisfarne, Seahouses and Amble. It lies within the natural region of the North Northumberland Coastal Plain.

The coastal area is situated to the east of the A1 road. It is sparsely populated and includes sandy beaches, sand dunes, rugged cliffs and isolated islands. It includes two National Nature Reserves. Fortresses and peel towers along the coast are evidence of past conflicts between the English and Scots in this border area. Coal fields are nearby and 'sea coal' is washed up on the beaches.

Coordinates: 55°35′18″N 1°39′51″W / 55.58833°N 1.66417°W / 55.58833; -1.66417
