The Lesser-Known Yorkshire Beach With Golden Sands & Stunning Cliff Views

The Lesser-Known Yorkshire Beach With Golden Sands & Stunning Cliff Views

East Yorkshire coast is a wonderful stretch of sandy beaches that thousands flock to every summer, but instead of visiting the usual seaside spots like Bridlington and Hornsea, why not head to the lesser-known Barmston beach this summer?

Located between Bridlington and Hornsea, the sandy beaches of Barmston sit beneath Barmston Beach Holiday Park and are popular with visitors to the park – and those looking for something different from Yorkshire beaches.

The park itself is home to an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant and play area and is a lovely local holiday park for those looking for places to stay in Yorkshire this summer.

But, the beach, Barmston, has previously been awarded a Blue Flag, but due to coastal erosion, which is a huge problem along this stretch of coast either way, the status was withdrawn back in 2010.

The long sandy beach stretches 2km all the way to Bridlington if you fancied walking it. The beach is a popular dog-walking spot.

Not fancy heading down to the beach? You can take in the views along the incredible clifftops and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Barmston Beach area.

There are no facilities open to the public, but there is a great pub in the quiet village of Barmston the Black Bull, which has lodges as well serves up delicious food and drinks.

Interestingly, the cliffs at Barmston Beach used to be the main route to Bridlington, Sands Lane in the snap above once swung north along the coast, but has been taken by the sea due to the coastal erosion in the area.

If you’re looking for a dog walk, or to get away from the buzz of the busier beaches further up the coast then Barmston Beach is definitely to head to. With the views out to the North Sea, and overshadowed by the cliffs, it’s a real treat and a lovely hidden gem.
