Bridlington North Beach is a Blue Flag-waving, award-winning gem of a beach backed by Flamborough Cliffs. The beach is sand and shingle so you’re in luck if you’re going to have your very own team of sandcastle builders in tow and there’s plenty of space to enjoy the sand with your clan even at the height of summer.
Thanks to the wide promenades that surround it, Bridlington North Beach is a favourite spot with visitors to the area as it’s within easy reach of those amenities that can make or break a day on the sand (ice cream shops and the toilets to be precise). Bridlington’s always been the kind of Yorkshire seaside resort that has something for everyone and it’s one of the most picturesque beaches in the region.
There’s a seasonal dog ban on the beach (between the north pier and the east of Limekiln Lane), and it’s close enough to Bridlington’s bustling harbour that you can just take time out on the sand and watch the boats drifting in and out in the distance. On a summer’s day the sounds of the fair carry on the breeze and the North Beach welcomes families, walkers and sightseers, but thanks to its wide expanse of sand there’s always plenty of space no matter what you like to do.
