The coastal services team have chalets, deck-chairs, accessibility bikes and beach wheelchairs available to hire.

Local nature reserves (LNRs) are places for people and wildlife. They have wildlife or geological features that are of local interest and can provide people with study and learning opportunities or to simply enjoy having contact with nature.

Danes Dyke: A spectacular wooded ravine, with a network of nature trails, linking to Sewerby Hall and Flamborough Head, with access to the beach and cliff top walks.

Flamborough Outer Headlands: A dramatic cliff top peninsular with outstanding views across the chalk cliffs, caves and maritime grassland, with access to the beach and cliff top walks.

South Landing: A quieter nature reserve with a mixture of woodland ravine and open grassland, offering dramatic coastal views back to Bridlington. The site has a small visitor centre with access to the beach and cliff top walks.

Information on how to get these, parking and facilities can be found on the East Riding Coast and Countryside website.
