Scarborough is one of the biggest and most spectacular of Yorkshire’s many bays and has two award winning beaches that really come to life in the summer with a packed roster of activities and entertainment attracting a mixed crowd of families, wedding parties, surfers and various water sport fanatics.
Whitby is another grand resort and enjoys a relaxed vibe whilst drawing a cultured crowd as well as the regular smattering of beach lovers who head to Whitby Beach, a big family friendly bay perfect for fossil combing, surfing and water sports.
Filey enjoys a similar cultural charm to Whitby whilst families are attracted to the long, child friendly beach with its excellent facilities, deep rock pools, pony rides and promenade.
Depending on how active you’re feeling, entertainment ranges from taking a sailing lesson to hiring a deckchair, with plenty of options in between.
The traditional fishing village of Bridlington has two golden sandy beaches, offers donkey rides in the summer and is home to a bustling harbour filled with multi-coloured boats selling their catch of the day to tourists and locals.
If you’re looking for a budget beach holiday that offers nothing but unadulterated natural beauty then dodge the deckchairs and head for Robin Hoods Bay. Here you’ll find nothing but un-spoilt beaches and breathtaking clifftop walks.
So next time you’re looking at likely destinations for your next seaside holiday don’t forget to give some serious consideration to the many resorts dotted along the coast of Yorkshire with their traditional charm and award winning beaches.
