Are you looking for a top seaside destination without the trouble of leaving Britain? Bridlington could be the ideal choice. This hidden gem in Yorkshire has some truly stunning beaches, with plenty to keep all the family busy if you decide to choose Bridlington holidays.
This stretch of glorious sand is over a mile long, and will offer a very different experience depending on what time of year you visit. Between October and April, this glorious beach is a popular spot for dog-walkers, who enjoy the chance to walk as far as the Humber estuary. However, in summer pooches are limited to a small designated area, and Bridlington South Beach is transformed into the perfect place to bring the kids, with donkey rides, a paddling pool, and the ideal sand for building sandcastles!
Just a stone’s throw from our holiday cottages in Bridlington, North Beach offers some of the most spectacular views in the region. It’s the best place to go to get pictures of the chalk cliffs of Flamborough Headland, and bird watchers will often flock here to view the enormous variety of sea birds. If you’re looking for a unique souvenir of your holiday in Bridlington, this beach always has plenty of pretty stones and shells.
North Landing Beach
A little bit further afield, North Landing Beach is much smaller. Those who are up to the steep descent from the car park will be rewarded by a charming beach that’s popular with fishermen and kayakers all year round, and – thanks to its clear waters and varied sealife – is a hotspot for snorkelling in the summer months.
Thrillseekers who’ve chosen to stay in one of our Bridlington holiday cottages shouldn’t miss out on Fraisthorpe Beach, the top spot in the vicinity for kite surfing. It’s also extremely popular with ramblers. Dogs are allowed all year round, and if you visit outside of peak season, you can even organise horse riding on this long, sandy stretch of Bridlington Bay.
This sand and pebble beach is renowned locally for its rock pools, making it a great choice to bring the kids for some exploring at low tide. There’s also plenty to keep bird watchers happy, with oyster-catchers, gannets and eider ducks in the vicinity. Don’t miss out on the nearby lighthouse, which dates back to 1806 and is still in use today!
