It is a popular bird watching area with Cresswell pond and bird hide nearby and the Druridge Bay Country Park less than 3 miles (5 km) away. The village has one ice cream shop which closes out of season. The village also has two caravan holiday home parks - Cresswell Towers and Golden Sands. Cresswell Towers takes its name from the old tower nearby and is owned by Parkdean Resorts.


Snab Point, 500 metres (1,600 ft) south of The Carrs, is a sheltered bay with the Alcan aluminium smelting plant on its south side. Embedded in the small cliffs of Snab Point are the remnants of fossilised trees. The beach area is littered with the remnants of fossilised wood and small seams of coal can be seen in the cliffs. Depending on the tides and wind, vast swathes of sea coal is washed up within the bay. The area was formed during the carboniferous period some 310 million years ago, when the current land mass was in a region below southern Spain, more than 1,000 miles (1,600 km) south of its present position.
