Flamborough Head Special Area of Conservation

The Flamborough Head SAC protects Europe’s most northerly outcrop of coastal chalk

The numerous sea caves, unique chalk reef and extensive vegetated sea cliffs around Flamborough provide important habitat for a wide range of wildlife.  The unique geological features of the headland and the rich waters of the North Sea – nourished by the meeting of two currents, known as the Flamborough Front – draw seabirds and other marine species to the area each year.
