The Yorkshire Coast is famous for many things … including great beach walks!
While there are some main beaches from which dogs are banned, there a many more secluded or smaller beaches on which you can take your pooch.
The beach bans are in place until 30th September, so it won’t be long before your pooch can enjoy the golden sands of the main beaches along the Yorkshire Coast!
Of course, you can take your dog and the rest of the family along the many footpaths and pavements in all our lovely seaside towns, including the Marine Drive in Scarborough and the Esplanade in Filey.
The main beach bans are in place in Scarborough, Filey and Whitby yet there are plenty of other locations where you can take your dog throughout the year.
Fraisthorpe Beach is just off the A165 and is actually in the next county, East Yorkshire. This is flat sandy beach and great for some bracing walks.
Runswick Bay … north of Whitby and a pretty as a postcard. A short walk of around two miles with cliffs and places to have some refreshments.
Bridlington’s South Beach … nice a flat beach at this most traditional of resorts. Dog restrictions apply May to September. Discover Bridlington’s history and enjoy an ice-cream!
Flamborough Head … with its stunning lighthouse, cafe or two and plenty of chalk cliffs.
Sandsend to Whitby … again, pooch restrictions apply and watch out for the tides! A slightly longer walk of about four miles which takes in the glorious scenery of this part of Yorkshire.
Cayton Bay … popular with surfers, with a steep drop into the bay itself. This is a secluded yet beautiful beach which gets covered by the tide.
Hunmanby Gap … great for the dogs and a hidden treasure.
Other beaches include Filey, Scarborough’s North and South Bays and Whitby.
