The East Riding coast

If you fancy something a little different from the traditional seaside towns of Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea, try visiting some of the alternative rural beaches to explore our beautiful coast and many varied habitats. The East Riding of Yorkshire coastline is diverse in its make up, stretching from the chalk cliffs of Bempton and Flamborough Head, through to the Holderness plain with boulder clay and sand dunes.
