Hey guys! So for the second instalment of this series about the amazing beaches near to Hull, I thought I’d share the beautiful beach of Danes Dyke with you all! Click here to read the first part of this series which is about Mappleton beach. Danes Dyke is on the southern side of Flamborough and it has views across Bridlington Bay and further down the coastline. I’ve only ever visited it once but I fell in love with it and I’m so desperate to return again soon. It was absolutely gorgeous and was very aesthetically pleasing. So in today’s post, I’m going to talk about the stunning beach of Danes Dyke and our first visit there.
After parking in the car park, we wandered down the slope that led to the beach. I should warn you that if you’re thinking of visiting, the slope is quite steep in places and it cuts through a forest which eventually opens out into the sand and sea of the beach. It’s totally worth it though to ultimately reach Danes Dyke beach.
It’s a stunning beach, featuring chalk white cliffs with green grass sprawling over their top. There are white pebbles dotted across the sand that gradually fade out into a section of seaweed. At low tide, rockpools are exposed, making it a great place to hunt for marine wildlife. After trekking over all this, you finally reach the sandy stretch of beach which is damp from the undulating waves that crawl across it. It’s absolutely beautiful there and since there weren’t many people there, this just added to it’s tranquil atmosphere.
I enjoyed a serene walk across the sandy section of the beach with the waves trickling over my feet. I just couldn’t stop admiring the obvious beauty of the beach and I couldn’t deny how much I loved it. It was so different and contrasting to the other beaches that I’d visited in the area before like Mappleton, Hornsea and Bridlington and I think that’s part of the reason why I was so keen on it. I snapped a few pictures before me and my family headed back home again, vowing to return really soon.
Thank you for reading this post! As you can tell, I loved Danes Dyke beach so much! What’s your favourite beach? Let me know in the comments! There’ll be another post out soon but until then bye for now!
