This sandy beach lies between the more famous resorts of Scarborough and Filey, and is usually much quieter than its neighbours; however, it has a lot to offer in its own right.
The wide sweeping bay is Marine Conservation Society Recommended, as well as holding Blue Flag and Quality Coast Awards, so water quality is good. The bay faces the North Sea and is popular with surfers and windsurfers. Birdwatchers and fossil hunters also congregate here - in and around the cliffs are a productive area for fossil hunting.
There’s access from here to the long distance footpath The Cleveland Way, and a public footpath runs through National Trust woodland to Scarborough.
