AG by the Sea: Fraisthorpe Beach!

Hey guys! Today, I’m bringing you an instalment of my ‘AG by the Sea’ series where I discuss the beautiful beaches along the Yorkshire Coastline near where I live. As many of you will already know, I love the beach and the coast so much; there is nothing better for me than a long walk on a stunning beach. Visiting Fraisthorpe was new for me as I’ve never been before so I had no idea what to expect. I was certainly not disappointed as it’s such a lovely beach and I enjoyed my walk there immensely. It may even become one of my main beach spots in the future! In this post, I’m going to be supplying you with some more information about this beach and discussing what I liked most about it. I will also compare it to some my other favourite beaches in the area.Fraisthorpe is one of those beaches with some areas of just smooth sand and some areas of scattered pebbles and rock pools. Unfortunately, the weather was quite ferocious the day that I visited with forceful winds and a murky grey sky. However, it was interesting to be there during winter and I’d be intrigued to see how the beach differs overall in summer when the weather is a bit warmer and the sun is shining down on it.The sea was quite far out when we went, leaving a vast area of sand exposed. It was far too cold to dip my feet into the water so I resorted to wandering alongside the sea and watching the waves ripple along the sand. I found that walking across the beach was quite easy because the sand wasn’t coated with pebbles like it is on some beaches. Fraisthorpe can actually link up to Bridlington beach so if we’d walked a bit further, I dare say we might’ve crossed over the border onto the neighbouring beach.There were two ways you could walk along the beach. On my next visit, I think it would be cool to explore the other route since it gives you a different perspective and a different experience of the beach. For me, there really is nothing more relaxing than a walk along a beautiful beach such as Fraisthorpe and even though we didn’t go for a really long walk, I still enjoyed myself a lot. Fraisthorpe is now officially on my list of beach hot spots along the Yorkshire coastline!Thank you for reading this post! Where is your favourite beach? Let me know in the comments! There’ll be another post out soon but until then bye for now!Amelia Grace a.k.a Amelia in Hull

  1. What a beautiful beach! ✨ I live close to a couple of beaches but I don’t think I’ve visited one so far this year, hopefully the weather will calm down so that I can go in Spring & make a day of it ⛱️ Great post! I’d never heard of Fraisthorpe before so I’ll have to put it on my bucket list for one day 💕

  2. Just catching up on comments to y blog. It has been great to read them and re-read them throughout this pandemic. I love the way you take the reader on a personal journey to the places you visit. Fraisthorpe is a favourite of mine. There is evidence of both Roman and Iron Age settlements in the area. If you are observant you may find a piece of pottery on the sand.
