Earls Dyke Beach (Fraisthorpe Sands)

This rural beach, sometimes referred to as Fraisthorpe Sands, forms part of the long stretch of sand which runs the length of Bridlington Bay on Yorkshire's East Riding coast. The beach is backed by agricultural land and is used for fishing and beachcombing. The Earl's Dyke River enters the sea here.
This stretch of the coastline is a great place to come for long, bracing walks, to shake away the cobwebs.
The small settlement of Fraisthorpe, behind the beach features a church and a few buildings. Proper facilities can be found in the resort town of Bridlington, about 3 miles north of the beach.
