The promenade joins the beach with Barkby Beach and Central Beach, both of which are also long and sandy. This promenade has been added into the National Cycle Network, offering up some fantastic coastal biking opportunities, replete with nice views.

The beach itself has been awarded the coveted Marine Conservation Society Recommendation, meaning that you can visit Ffrith safe in the knowledge that it will be perfectly clean and tidy. The water quality is excellent – great for a spot of swimming of paddling.

There are lots of different activities you can take part in here as well, including sailing, jet skiing and even wind surfing. Bring a picnic and enjoy a bite to eat while you look out over the sea.

And if you’re after a bit more family excitement, nearby is the Ffrith Beach Festival Gardens, where you can enjoy a bit of ten pin bowling and a hearty meal from the BBQ Grill.
