The beach at Hornsea is made up of fine golden sand and shingle, and features a newly-developed promenade.
Hornsea has maintained its Blue Flag status. To earn a Blue Flag, beaches must meet all the strict criteria across a range of measurements, such as water quality, beach cleanliness and information on safety and well-managed facilities.
To the north is the picturesque Flamborough headland and stretching to the south, Spurn Point at the entrance to the River Humber. The beach marks one end of the Trans-Pennine Trail, which passes close to Hornsea Mere, the largest freshwater lake in Yorkshire. The nearby town, famous for its pottery, is a conservation area with historic houses dating to the 15th century and a parish church from the 12th century.
