In the photo above you can see most of Filey beach looking south towards the Coble Landing and the hotels along the promenade. This photo of Filey beach was taken from the cliff tops of Filey Brigg near the caravan park.

There are many car parking spaces up at the cliff top where it is only a short walk down to Filey beach.
