There are plenty of activities from clifftop climbs, smashing waves, shore sports, and rock-pooling  for everyone to enjoy.

Whitby

Whitby beach received a prestigious Blue Flag Beach Award recently. The international blue flag and the UK seaside awards are the consistency points for beaches which indicate that those who frequent them should be confident that they are tidy, healthy and that they follow the highest expectations for the climate. Whitby is still a popular holiday because of its award-winning beach but don't worry, with more than 2 miles of beaches, there's more than enough space for everybody! The West Cliff beach extends out to the West Pier and as well as spectacular ocean scenery, you can still see the colorful beach huts and donkey rides that are to be had in the season. Once you've had enough of the beach, you can go inland and have a bite to eat in one of the many excellent Fish and Chips restaurants like the famed Magpie Cafe or, if you're feeling ambitious, you can head up the 199 stairs (do not fail to count them on the way up) to visit the glorious Whitby Abbey, the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Scarborough Beach

Scarborough is one of the best seaside resorts in the UK and it is easy to see why. Whatever your age, whatever your perception of what makes a pleasant day out at the seaside, in this lively Yorkshire town you will find what you are searching for. Scarborough provides two wide, sandy bays, separated by a rocky promontory on which the magnificent Scarborough Castle ruins of the 11th century are towered. If it's constructing sandcastles, playing in the amusement arcades, or splashing in the ocean, children would enjoy what's on offer here. South Bay is the two beaches' livelier, supported by bars, ice-cream parlours, restaurants, theaters, and all the shows and delights you'd anticipate from a typical resort on the seaside. Donkey rides can be located at the beach. A fine Victorian promenade runs along South Bay, and on the other side of the promontory connects this side of the city with North Bay. The beach is popular with families and has good surfing conditions at times. The port offers mooring for fishing vessels at one end of the harbour, as well as the regular yachts and leisure boats. Boat trips pass around the bay or farther along the coast from here.

Bridlington Beach

Bridlington's North Beach is clean and is a blend of sand and shingle with extensive facilities and a cliff-top nature reserve. There are chalets you can hire if you only want to chill but if you feel like an adventure then the beautiful Flamborough Cliffs are nearby and the views are incredible from there. Bridlington Spa stands overlooking the lake, beaches, and harbor with breathtaking views from its feature suites. This is the place of choice for numerous musicians and performing shows with a long and impressive background and it is worth keeping an eye on their schedule of activities. A research professor published a study on creating the ultimate sandcastle in 2017 and Bridlington was number two in his list of the best sandcastle beaches – obviously, the best castles are built of eight parts of dry sand to one part of water and Bridlington's beach offers up a good mix!

Filey Beach

Filey's typical seaside destination is less industrial than some of its east-coast rivals and is an excellent seaside spot for young families or anybody searching for a fine stretch of decent sand for hikes, sand fishing, kite-flying or even horseback riding. The magnificent 5-mile strip of golden sand stretches from Filey Brigg's rugged peninsula to the north down to Bempton, home to an RSPB reserve. A quarter-mile depth of sand is visible at low tide. There should be lots of nice rock pools for younger tourists to discover along this path. Filey has a deep fishing history and tourists can still see fishermen repair and throw their nets from typical "coble" fishing vessels today. The promenade along the seafront features a series of works of art inspired by the natural heritage of the place. For the real thing though, go to Filey Brigg which is a decent bird watching place and marks the start of the coastal walk along the Cleveland Way. The section between the Royal Parade and the beach slipway is subject to seasonal limits on dog-walking. During this point of the year, other areas of the beach are dog-friendly.

Spurn Head Beach

A three-mile stretch of sand and shingle beach at the mouth of the Humber estuary which runs along a narrow spit. Beaches are on each side of the spit and it's easy to find a position out of the sea. Swimming should be taken care of anywhere near the shore, as the tidal currents can be very intense. Spurn point and its surroundings are a protected SSSI (site of special scientific interest) and a perfect location to see migratory birds. Spurn is a common fossil hunting location, as well.

Saltburn Beach

Saltburn is a seaside resort with a wealth of heritage from the Victorian heyday and beyond. Saltburn beach itself is a sand and shingle affair supported by a promenade and with other surrounding services. Saltburn is host to one of the best surf spots in this North Sea coastal path. This racks up more swell than adjacent locations faced straight north. This is also sheltered from the storm by Huntcliff's formidable headland at the eastern edge.

Sandsend Beach

The remote, picturesque village of sandsend sits between Runswick Bay and Whitby, on the heritage coastline of Yorkshire. The cool, sandy beach here, with little rivers on each side flowing into the water, is really attractive and provides a perfect spot for a family day out. Sandsend beach is popular with hunters, fishermen, and walkers of the fossils. A beach area is zoned off for swimming in the summer.

Runswick Bay Beach

Runswick bay, about 9 miles north of Whitby, is commonly known as one of the most scenic places on the coast of Yorkshire. Move down here for sandcastles, beach play, rock pooling, and maybe even a swim in the waters in the summer months. Come here out of season for heartfelt cliff-top walks along the Cleveland Way or perhaps a little fossil chase. At any time of year, you may be fortunate enough to see seals. The beach itself, with broken rocks and stony patches, is a mixture of clay. It is potentially the strongest strip of sand in this section of the coast that can be identified. The rocks which are uncovered along the shoreline are also found to hold valuable fossils while the tide is out.

Cayton Bay Beach

The Yorkshire Coast is one of England's best surf areas. This stretch of coastline features some of the UK's finest beaches and its natural geology provides some absolutely stunning conditions for surfing. This is no more evident at any place than at Cayton Bay, which serves a large swell that even the most experienced surfers would enjoy. Cayton Bay boasts a magnificent wide sweeping bay, a dog-friendly beach year-round, clean water, affordable parking, and great facilities. A firm favorite not only with surfers but also bird watchers, fun-seekers and fossil hunters or those who just want to relax and unwind, Cayton Bay is the perfect place to set up camp for your Yorkshire Coast adventures.

Runswick Bay

If you like a long stretch of beach in a friendly atmosphere but with no razzamatazz on the seaside, this is the one for you. The tiny, former fishing village—a stack of red pantile-roofed cottages clinging to the cliffs—looks over a sandy, shingle beach stretching to Kettleness headland for a mile and a half East. If it's constructing sandcastles, paddle-boarding, exploring rock pools, or enjoying a stroll along the beaches or cliffs, you can make your own entertainment here. Sandside cafe (Cleveland way), situated directly above the slipway and with a wide terrace, offers a basic variety of burgers, salads and cookies, buckets, and fishing nets. And that is what it is about. Definitely perfect.
