The Northumbria Anthology includes a recording of a song by this name:
http://www.northumbriaanthology.com/songs.htm
Unfortunately is it part of a 10 disc set, but it's worth having anyway. I believe Owen Brannigan has also recorded it.
It's listed elsewhere, on the 'Wor Geordie Dialect' site, as composed by Jack Robson, but no sign so far of the words.

And countless the beautiful sites I have seen
But I'm a Tynesider and I proudly must say
I've seen nothing finer, than Cullercoats Bay.

Is that the one???
I have the sheet music after singing it at Cullercoats Primary School

I've known this song for many years. It is a beautiful tuneful song, and one which rightly boasts about the North East Coast.    Unfortunately I only know the first verse!   (Slightly different words to those that Sarah Guest quoted - above).
Can someone please let me have the lyrics of the whole song.

Cullercoats Bay

(Tyneside arrr. Robson)

Words and music by a Northumbrian schoolmaster, J. G. Robson, who incidentally, was born in the same village as myself not very far from Cullercoats Bay. Alas the small white houses where fisher-folk bide were demolished last yera (1959) despite tremendous local opposition. However, you can still buy lobsters and crabs, and he old lifeboat is still ready and waiting in the Ancient Harbour which modern ideas have as yet failed to alter.

And thats all he wrote.....

Cullercoats Bay

In many strange lands o'er the ocean I've been,
And countless the beautiful sights I have seen,
But I'm a Tynesider, and proudly must say,
I've seen nothing finer than Cullercoats Bay.

The men who go fishing, I've met by the score,
They spin the same yarns both abroad and ashore:
But give me the language that's spoken my way,
Sweet music to exiles from Cullercoats Bay.

I love the small houses where fisher-folk bide,
So neat, and so tidy, if you peep inside:
Fresh lobsters, and crabs at the doors they display,
And sell, Canny Hinny, at Cullercoats Bay.

How well I remember those mates that I knew,
We talked on the Bank Top as sailormen do:
But when seas were raging, all ready were they,
To man the old lifeboat, at Cullercoats Bay.

And when I grow old, and go sailing no more,
I'll make for the harbour I fondly adore:
And there, in life's gloaming, with each passing day,
I'll thank the Almighty for Cullercoats Bay.

(Written by Jack Robson ('Wherever ye gang you're sure to find a Geordie' fame). He was the Headmaster at Backworth then Shiremoor school)
