- Wilsthorpe beach is part of a long stretch of sand just to the south of Bridlington on the Yorkshire Coast. This sandy beach is backed by sand dunes and low cliffs and as the tide goes out you get a flat expanse of golden sand which is ideal for taking long walks or water sports. These flat sands make it popular with power kiting and kite buggying. Facilities include shops, cafe, campsite, caravan Park, slipway.
- Danes Dyke is a beach near Flamborough, Bridlington. The beach sits at the end of Danes Dyke, a local Nature Reserve that takes its name from the ancient ditch and bank earthwork, which runs through the reserve. This is not just about the beach but some excellent walks through the woodland. If the tide is out the beach is flat and sandy, with like most beaches in the area a pebble and rock area closer to the cliffs. Access to the beach can be gained by walking from the Danes Dyke car park.
- Flamborough lifeboat station was established in 1871 but went through a major rebuild in the early 1990’s, with the station now operating an inshore lifeboat. The station is open to the public during the summer and has a gift shop. Originally Flamborough had two stations this one at South Landing and one at North Landing. This strategic positioning on either side of the Flamborough headland allowed launches regardless of the weather conditions. You can still see the de-commissioned station at North Landing.
- South Landing beach is on the south side of the Flamborough Headland near Bridlington. South Landing beach is a curving sandy and pebble beach under cliffs. A great family beach where you can play traditional beach games, picnic and explore the rock pools. The surrounding woodland and Flamborough cliffs are great to explore and observe a wide selection of sea birds. Facilities include car parking and toilets.
- Barmston beach is a 2km stretch of sandy beach with rocks and pebbles backed by soft clay cliffs south of Bridlington. The land around Barmston is only just above sea level and this area is constantly threatened by the North Sea. You can clearly see evidence of this erosion by the way the beach road just stops at a barrier by the car park and holiday park. Access to the beach can be tricky from the car park because of the erosion and probably the best option is to walk through the holiday park. During World War 2 it was thought to be vulnerable to enemy attack and was heavily fortified. You can still see today some of these fortifications, although many have been taken by erosion and some of the pillboxes now seen close to the beach would once have been further inland. Facilities near the beach include a small car park and holiday parks, with the main village of Barmston a short distance back up the road. The closest park to the beach has toilets and a cafe and probably the easiest access to the beach.
