A stunning beach which can get quite busy in the summer months.

Filey Brigg is a long narrow peninsula situated about a mile north of Filey, North Yorkshire. In the early 1970s the fields on top of the Brigg were turned into Filey Brigg Country Park. The landward end of the peninsula of Filey Brigg is known as Carr Naze, whilst the long neck of rock at the seaward end is called the Brigg. This is by far the best place to view the natural bay in which Filey sits. It is a gentle and very pleasant walk from the main car park and one that cannot be rushed. In the opposite direction is Scarborough and the monument on top of Oliver’s Mount can be clearly made out in the distance. This is a beautiful spot, no doubt about it.
