Nestled along the Flamborough Headland, you will find the picturesque beach of Thornwick Bay.
The surrounding chalk cliffs at Thornwick Bay are teeming with birdlife, making it a great destination for birdwatching, as well as for picnics and cliff top walks. Busy yourself searching for sea creatures in the numerous rock pools or explore the numerous caves dotted about the beach, which were used by smugglers and pirates.
The walk down to the beach is quite steep and narrow in parts, and the rocks can become quite slippery, so be careful when visiting.
At low tide, you can walk to Thornwick’s much smaller neighbour, Little Thornwick. As both are largely rocky, the walk between the two is rather challenging and you should check tide times before making this journey. The beach offers panoramic views across the sea, which is said to be home to many pirate shipwrecks, and stunning sea arches.
