Tunstall Beach

Withernsea, East Riding of Yorkshire

This rural sandy beach is set amongst low craggy cliffs, and is a tranquil setting popular with couples and young families. There is a raised peat bed that was once a large mere (marsh), with a settlement known as Sand-le-Mere which can be seen at low tide.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Hull (King George Dock)) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
