Things to do at Danes Dyke Beach review
Danes Dyke Beach is located about halfway between Flamborough and Bridlington in East Yorkshire. It is a beautiful beach which although isn’t famed for its sand it is a fantastic place to explore. Plus you can enjoy a walk in the woods.
Danes Dyke is a bank and ditch earthwork ‘wall’ and it is said to date back to Iron Age times. The cliffs are made of coastal chalk and there are thousands of white pebbles and rocks on the beach. Unless the tide is at its lowest there is rarely sand on the beach but you can usually clamber over pebbles and search for fossils. It is recommended that you check the tide times before visiting.
There is a car park high on the ridge plus an overflow car park in the summer. It is a steep, but short, walk down to the beach. There is also a 1-mile walk through the woodlands. It’s a lovely walk and not too strenuous although there are steps going up and down in places. It’s a great place to see snowdrops and bluebells. You can also walk a coastal path to Sewerby.
