Filey Brigg is the most famous feature of Filey. A must do is to walk from Filey sands to the very tip of Filey Brigg and have the sea all around you splashing in your face - it is really exhilarating. But this is a dangerous walk as you can only do it at low tide and you MUST get off the brigg at least two hours BEFORE high tide to avoid being trapped on the brigg. It is wise to check the tide times before you set off. The times of the tides on each day are clearly posted around Filey sands.

The walk up on Carr Naze above Filey Bay has the best views of the bay and Bempton cliffs. On a good clear day you can see right across to Scarborough and its castle on the west side of the naze. Be careful though as the soft clay cliffs around Carr Naze are prone to erosion and landslides.
A must is following the narrow path to its end where you can admire the tip of Filey Brigg from a high and safer viewpoint
Carr Naze is part of Filey Brigg Country Park

Filey is peaceful and unspoilt. It has a five-mile long beach of clean golden sand, stretching from Bempton and Speeton at the south, to the rocky outcrop of Filey Brigg at the north. There are fossils in the cliffs, and rock pools on the Brigg. A real refuge from the cut and thrust of everyday life.
Filey, North Yorkshire, has its own passenger train station and frequent bus services. It is also within easy reach of the North Yorks Moors, Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay.
