Located along the Yorkshire coast, Hornsea Beach is a sand and shingle beach which is backed by a long and bustling promenade.
With large swathes of sandy beach, Hornsea is great for family fun and walking. Indeed, the famous Trans-Pennine trail ends at Hornsea. It is customary for walkers and cyclists to drop a ‘Southport Stone’ into the sand of the beach after completing this scenic trail.
Numerous water activities, such as kayaking, sailing and windsurfing are also popular here, due to the idyllic waters. If you would prefer not to get wet, you can play in the nearby amusement arcade and enjoy fish and chips along the promenade. If you are looking for a traditional British beachside experience, then look no further!
However, you can also enjoy a more peaceful time at one of the numerous cafés along the beach or relax on its golden sand. If you follow the coastal path south then you can also enjoy the wonderful beach of Mappleton. You can find useful walking guides such as this one by Hill Top Kat, which clearly lay out the route with photos. No matter what you choose to do, you’ll surely have a memorable day out!
