Description by Marie Donnelly who added this swim
Swimming is great between the piers, protected from the worst excesses of the North East winds and weather - apart from when strong winds are blowing directly onto shore, when the semi-confined space can make the water more choppy. Good but not great water quality, family and dog friendly, multiple cafe's, restaurants and an activity centre - Adventure Sunderland - on the sea front, with the Marine Activities Centre just around the corner in the dock. Great for a dip, a paddle, and a good long swim if you're feeling able and willing. There is. at the right tide time, a tiny mini-beach from which you can swim at the Yacht Club end of the beach. RNLI are based on this section of the beach.
