Fraisethorpe is located in the middle of the long sandy Bridlington Bay. All the amenities you could wish for are found at Bridlington which has two beaches itself.

Forces-of-Nature Sports however tend to be indulged in at Friasethorp, where parking is available on the beach and on top of the cliff. This long sandy beach is ideal for beginners in the right conditions because the water is shallow a long way out. Also, this location receives more wind than many other sites along the same stretch of coast because the sand dunes are lower so they cast less of a wind shadow. This coupled with W winds makes this a great location for speed sailing as the water tends to be mainly flat. In N winds, the water is much choppier and great for wave sailing. However, on a good day there can be as many as fifty people on the water so visitors are advised to set out early.

This beach is the perfect place, for a cheap, good old british day out. The perfect setting for a picnic.
