Newton by the Sea is a civil parish in the county of Northumberland in northern England. The parish is about 8 miles northwest of Alnwick and lies on the coast between the larger settlements of Embleton and Seahouses. From 1894 until 1955 it was part of Alnwick Rural District. In 1974 rural districts were abolished and Newton by the Sea became part of the Alnwick District until 2009 when Northumberland became a unitary authority.
There are two distinct settlements in the parish: High Newton by the Sea (which, despite its name, is about half a mile inland) and the coastal Low Newton by the Sea, owned by the National Trust. The area is notable for the diversity of birds to be observed. Just to the south is Embleton Bay.
In 1955 the area covered by Newton by the Sea was sizeably increased when the parishes of Brunton, Doxford, and Fallodon were all abolished and absorbed into Newton by the Sea.
