Looking for somewhere to enjoy the hot weather this summer? This beach along the East Yorkshire coast has been praised for its beautiful sands, gorgeous white cliffs and wildlife. The lesser-known North Landing beach at Flamborough Head can be found by just heading further up from Bridlington.
As the heatwave envelops the UK, there’s nothing like a refreshing breeze off the ocean and a paddle with ice cream to help cool you down.
However, while we enjoy taking our family to the beach to create sandcastles and go rock-pooling, so does everyone else, and the beaches may quickly get overcrowded.
North Landing’s lovely beach has an intimate air to it, as though the white chalky cliffs of Flamborough encircle you and make you feel secluded. The natural cove, which is made up of soft sand and stones, is ideal for swimming, cave exploration, and rockpool hunting for marine life.
There is a cafe at the top of the hill that serves food and drinks, so you won’t have to worry about packing a picnic if you don’t want to. You’ll have one fewer thing to lug down to the beach.
We aren’t the only ones who have noticed as reviewers on TripAdvisor have been praising the little beach found in the white chalk cove along the coast. It tops the East Yorkshire beach rankings with an average score of 4.5 and 140 people described it as excellent or very good.
Tourists have been praising the beach with one person writing: “Probably one of the most beautiful and picturesque places I have ever seen in this country. We visited at high tide so wasn’t able to explore the caves or go rock pooling, so instead we had a walk around the headlands with the wild flowers, bees, butterflies, birds and beautiful other insects.”
Another person wrote: “Always a good place to visit. There is a walk down to the beach and it is a bit steep returning. This is expected though when you look at the surrounding cliffs.”
