The long sandy beach at Barmston sits below the Barmston Beach Holiday Park. Given its fairly remote location the beach is mostly frequented by families staying at the park.
Stretching over 2km to the town of Bridlington in the north, there is no shortage of space at Barmston even if it ever did get busy.
Barmston beach was previously awarded a Blue Flag, however, due to coastal erosion access down to the beach has become more difficult and the award was withdrawn in 2010. The beach does still have a Quality Coast award reflecting its cleanliness and facilities.
