  • Thornwick Bay is a beautiful bay located on the Yorkshire Coastline at Flamborough Head near Bridlington.

    Thornwick Bay does not have much sand and is a mix of shingle, pebbles and flint under some magnificent cliffs. You also have the smaller bay of Little Thornwick Bay and it is possible to walk between both beaches at low tide and a natural amphitheatre exists with many rock pools.

    The headland around here is full of caves, the 3 largest are: Smugglers Cave which is the largest on the East coast of England, Church Cave and Thornwick Cave.

    Fishing and scuba diving is popular in and around Thornwick Bay, with maritime records showing 100s of wrecks within the bay area, although you need to be careful as you can have some strong currents.

    Thornwick Bay has a spectacular and beautiful setting and many people visit not just for the beach and rock pools but to enjoy the cliff top walks, where you get to see the seabirds including Puffins, Guillemots and Kittiwakes.

    Thornwick Bay is reached from the cafe where you have parking and good food.
