Yorkshire Coast beaches

Beaches on the Yorkshire Coast are some of the best in the UK. From busy seaside hotspots to quiet cliff hidden beaches, there is something for everyone to enjoy throughout the year. No matter what the season, beaches on the Yorkshire Coast are the perfect place to enjoy a day trip or a weekend away! From romantic Valentine's Day getaways and cosy winter breaks to spring and summer holidays with the family, you will be coming back for more year after year.

Dog friendly beaches

For dog owners (and lovers), there is no better feeling than watching them bound, hop and leap in the sea, followed by a quick shake-off and running until their heart's content over our sweeping, sandy bays. Nevertheless, we want our visitors and residents to enjoy the beaches too and from 1 May until 30 September, North Yorkshire Council has put in place a bylaw that states no person in charge of a dog (other than a trained assistance dog) will, without reasonable excuse, be allowed on certain areas of specific beaches.

Please visit the North Yorkshire Council's website for details on beach accessibility.

Please note: Cayton Bay, Runswick Bay, Robin Hood's Bay, Staithes, Port Mulgrave, Hayburn Wyke, Kettleness, Saltwick Bay and Hunmanby Gap currently have no dog restrictions in place.
