    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.

      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.
