    Robin Hoods Bay Beach Info

    Robin Hoods Bay beach is a large beach in a small fishing hamlet situated on the Yorkshire Heritage Coast just south of Whitby, the bay is located on a steep hill and marks one end of the coast to coast walk.

    This beach is a great family location with the beach being shingle with many rock pools and is also large enough to cope with the summer crowds.

    The Coastal walk between Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay is one of the best parts of the Cleveland Way National Trail and you can imagine why in the 18th Century the bay was reported to be one of the busiest smuggling communities on the Yorkshire coast.

    Facilities include toilets, pubs, car park (although at the top of a steep hill), restaurants, shops, slipway and the Old Coastguard Station is one of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park Centres, exhibition and tourist information all at one location.

    Robin Hoods Bay Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

    1. Anonymous Robin Hoods Bay Beach
      Overall Rating:

      Good family beach.
      If you can cope with the walk down the hill then this is a good beach. The kids spent ages jumping over the flat rock slabs and rock pooling with their nets. A lot of the shops sold tat but you can find the odd gem.

    2. Anonymous Robin Hoods Bay Beach
      Overall Rating:

      Rock pool heaven.
      Brilliant for young children with a net. Tide goes out really far so safe to play. If you have time I recommend lunch in the pub overlooking the beach. A few small shops but a blessing to not be surrounded by seaside tat.
