Situated along the Yorkshire Coast, the sand and pebbled beach of Tunstall is the perfect spot to get away from it all.
This rural beach is a sublime spot to relax beside the sea and makes for pleasant leisurely strolls. As it is somewhat off the beaten path, there are rarely crowds, leaving you to enjoy the beach in relative solitude. If you are looking for some excitement, Tunstall is also a great playing field for beach cricket and football. Fans of fishing will particularly enjoy casting their lines here, as the beach is renowned for being an excellent fishing spot for cod and bass.
At low tide, you can venture out further across the sands. Those with a keen eye may be able to then spot the clay and timber remains of Sand-Le-Mere, an ancient forest that was submerged here thousands of years ago. Numerous archaeological digs have been run here and you can view some of these finds in the Hull Museum.
Backed by low clay cliffs and with stretching coastal views, this tranquil beach also makes for some fantastic photo opportunities, so be sure to charge your cameras! However, the area has one of the fastest eroding coastlines in Europe, so you must take care near the cliffs as falling debris is a real danger. Additionally, you should steer clear of the cliff edges if you brave the climb up.
