The small, medieval village of Wilsthorpe lies on the East Riding coast, approximately 2 miles south of Bridlington. The long, sandy beach here slopes gently into the sea and is backed by grassy dunes and very low cliffs.
At low tide a wide area of beach is exposed. The beach makes a good destination for a bracing sea walk at any time of year. It is also popular with dog walkers and sea anglers.
This area of the coastline was heavily defended during the Second World War and anti-tank blocks can be seen along the shoreline.
Nearby Bridlington has a choice of visitor attractions and other amenities.
