A coastal walk along the cliffs of Flamborough Head
Hazards and warnings
Visiting the cave is only possible at low tide. The cliffs are often unfenced and care should be taken near the edge, especially in high winds.
After parking, walk along the cliffside path away from the lighthouse, to the west alongside the golf course. Take care along the cliffs, as the path runs very close to the edge, with no fence. After cliff falls may make close the path, or make it impassable due to cliff falls eating away and the path.
After arriving at the North Bay, head down the concrete path to the small beach in the bay. The rock pools and caves are interesting to explore. The largest cave, which can be explored at low tide, is big and dark enough to need a torch to explore properly.
Warning: check the tide time before exploring the caves and rocks. Bear in mind that weather conditions (wind and rough seas) may make it dangerous on the beach even when the tide is out. Tide tables for Bridlington.
