Bridlington North is a sand and shingle beach backed by the Edwardian North Promenade and lies at the foot of the Flamborough cliffs and north of the harbour. The town and harbour are a short stroll away and the beach is very popular with families.

Activities

The main beach activity is fishing in winter. Fishing is prohibited from 1st May to 30th September. There is no zoning for water sports activities but windsurfing and kitesurfing are popular.

Wildlife and Walks

There are rockpools worth exploring to the north end of the beach and various seabirds can be viewed from the Heritage Coast. Walk around the historic town and explore this gorgeous coastline. Two fantastic reserves to the north are Flamborough Cliffs and Bempton Cliffs.
