This long sandy beach is ideal for wind and kite surfers because the water is shallow a long way out. Also, this location receives more wind than many other sites along the same stretch of coast because
the sand dunes are lower so they cast less of a wind shadow.
It is situated approximately 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Bridlington town centre. It lies to the east of the A165 road. Together with Barmston it forms the civil parish of Barmston and Fraisthorpe.
Fraisthorpe Up to 2009, Fraisthorpe beach was used to hold a yearly Elim Pentecostal Church youth and family camp
Within Fraisthorpe is the Grade II listed Anglican chapel dedicated to St Edmund. Originally 13th century, it was remodelled in 1893 by Smith and Brodrick. The chancel and nave are unified, and constructed of rubble and cobble. Remaining from the 1893 rebuild are the 4-foot (1.2 m) high remains of a 13th-century pier in the south wall, which Pevsner believes might be evidence of a former south aisle
