Newark Beach is found in Deerness, Orkney.
In the 1890s, it is said that a mermaid was sighted here for several summers. Today, this sandy beach can be visited via a pleasant coastal walk to Point of Ayre. You can spot wading birds at Newark Bay including purple sandpipers and ringed plovers, and at the eastern end you will find a car park and pretty golden sand.
