Great Thornwick Bay

The deeply eroded coastline around this area of Flamborough has resulted in the formation of many bays and coves, Great Thornwick Bay being one of the larger ones. Caves, arches and sea stacks can be seen in the vicinity and can be visited by boat at low tide - weather permitting!
