How to find us

Access : 

The road down to Hive Beach is narrow but straight and has pinchpoints giving priority to exiting traffic. Pedestrians and, occasionally, livestock may be on the road.

There are two NT carparks at Hive Beach and the closest one to us is the western, grassed, one but that is usally closed in Winter to allow the ground to recover. There is a track down from this carpark to the Lookout. The rerouted cliffpath goes through this carpark.

A few yards further away is the eastern, gravel-based, carpark. From here, you can walk below the café and up to the Lookout.

Note: if approaching from the west along the beach from Freshwater, a cliff fall on 05 March 2020 at Hive Beach means you may now get cut off at high tide so please check tide times before setting out.


Currently almost 60 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Filey in North Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.








The words National Coastwatch Institution and Eyes Along the Coast and the NCI logos are Registered Trademarks of NCI.
