Many years back Fraisthorpe was a nudist beach. Thankfully, especially in British weather, dog walkers have taken over and this is one of the few beaches dogs are allowed all year round. Both winter and summer walks here are lovely. I almost don't want to share it, it's that good!

You'll be taken off the main A road onto a single lane that winds through farm land. Arrive early and pay a few pounds to park on the farmland next to the beach, a man should be sitting in a hut to take your cash. There are basic public toilets here, so take advantage before setting off walking. The tide stretches out giving literally miles of sand for your dog to play. You'll share the beach with plenty of other dogs, along with horse riders, kite surfers and people fishing for Razor Clams. It never feels crowded because of the space, so you can be as sociable as you like.

A nice 3 mile walk straight up the coast will find you right on Bridlington's main beach. Here you'll have to pop the dog on the lead but it's the perfect rest point for good old fish and chips and mini doughnuts, in true British seaside style. Take a stroll back down to Fraisthorpe in the afternoon, but check the tides - we've been caught sometimes and had to take the path along the fields at the beach edge to get back to the car!

There are only one or two bins for your dog litter, so be prepared to carry to Bridlington or back up on the beach car park. Pack a towel to pat down your dog before he gets in the car, you will take half the beach home otherwise. Remember plenty of fresh water for them, especially if they are like mine and can't resist a drink of salty seawater. Hope you enjoy the walk as much as we do!

    We spent a lovely day introducing our 16 week labradoodle puppy to the delights of beach walks. It is beautiful, huge beach and huge sky. Highly recommended

    We have visited this beach all our lives - yes even when HALF of it was a nudist beach! It’s a lovely place to go all year round. The acess road and car park are owned by the local farm, who kindly allow us all to use this wonderful place. They charge a small car park fee to maintain the road and ask for donations to use the toilets which they give to charity every year. The beach area suffers from erosion and the car park had to be moved further inland last year.  One of our favourite places.

    Had a beautiful day out here.  Vast beach, plenty room for all.  Children and woolfs thoroughly enjoyed the bunkers on the beach.
