Not every trip to North Landing, situated on the coast to the east of the village of Flamborough and north of Flamborough Head, is one lucky to see this number of boats out. More than often they are pulled up the very steep slope, about or higher up than the foreground boat or just one or two.

The area of Flamborough head has chalk cliffs which produces some wonderful bays to look down into from the coast path. The RSPB has one of it's nature reserves, Bempton Cliffs, just up the coast, again offering superb cliff views while not forgetting the wonderful sea birds that nest on the cliffs - best during the breeding season. Local fishermen, from both North Landing and Bridlington (to the North), provide scenic boat trips to see the caves and bird sanctuaries as well as fishing trips.
