Situated along the Yorkshire coast, Filey Beach has miles of sandy beach for you to enjoy.

What is Filey Beach like?

Once a swarming fishing village, the Edwardian seaside resort of Filey Beach is a treat to visit. With 5 miles of golden sand to stroll along and calm waters to paddle in, there is something here for all the family. Filey is less commercialised and calmer than neighbouring beaches and makes for a great break from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.

In 2018, Filey Beach was named ‘Beach of the Year’ and is renowned as being one of the safest beaches in Britain. With its clear picturesque views and gently sloping beach, Filey is a serene haven for photographers and tourists alike. When gazing out over the shimmering sea, you can spot the dramatic Filey Brigg peninsula jut into the sea. You can follow a coastal trail to reach this point for further magnificent views (and photo-ops!) across the Yorkshire Coast.

The bird enthusiasts amongst you will also greatly cherish your time here. Sit back along the sandy shoreline and keep your binoculars handy as Filey Beach is a popular watch point for migrating birds. It is recommended that you mostly look toward the south of the beach, where you can spot a variety of birdlife flit between the limestone cliffs.

A trek from the beach to Filey Brigg would also not go amiss. This peninsula is a classified bird observatory, where rare bird species, such as Honey Buzzards, Petrels and Albatrosses, have been spotted.

Accessibility

There is reportedly disabled access down to the beach itself. There is a slipway that you can use to reach the beach. Unfortunately, there appears to be a very limited number of disabled bays for parking.

Further points of interest

Walk along the historic promenade and follow the sculpture trail. This seafront trail is a collaboration between the artist Russ Coleman and local Filey residents. The trail explores Filey’s history and heritage through a sequence of artworks and is a wonderful backdrop to learn about the area while enjoying the splendid shore.

This patch of the Yorkshire coast is absolutely stunning and well worth further exploration. You can follow a scenic coastal trail to the neighbouring beach of Reighton Sands

Dogs are permitted at Filey Beach. However, restrictions apply between the Royal Parade and the beach slipway from May 1st to 30th September.
