Stand and look along the 5 sandy miles of Filey Beach and you’ll be hard pushed to think of ways it could be any better for families, but visit on a summer’s day and you’ll be able to offer your little ones pony rides up and down the sand – now that’s one idyllic day on the beach.
Pony rides along the beach are as much a Filey tradition as hiring deckchairs and tucking into fish and chips, and as long as the sun’s shining you’ll most likely see them making their way up and down the shoreline with happy little people on board. Thanks to its huge expanse of sand the beach has plenty of space for all kinds of activities so there’s always something going on to entertain.
Filey Beach is one of those that feels just like a day on the beach used to, and with its brightly coloured beach huts and family-friendly amenities it makes a lovely setting for a day beside the sea with the kids. Times and prices can vary but rides are generally available during high season.
