Are you looking for a beach date in Yorkshire? Yorkshire has loads of great beaches, from stretching golden sands to idyllic little fishing villages. No matter what time of year it is, or what sort of beach you’re looking for, you’ll find something for you in Yorkshire. If you are planning a date and fancy a day by the sea, here’s our guide to Yorkshire’s top beaches…

Scarborough – 

One of the most famous beaches in Yorkshire, Scarborough is perfect for sun-seekers (in the summer months). A truly British seaside resort with arcades, donkey rides and more. The sandy beach provides space to walk or just sit and admire the sea views. In the winter, why not see what’s on at one of the many theatres and entertainment venues, or grab a hot drink at a beach-front cafe. There’s something to do in Scarborough all year round.

Whitby – 

Popular with bathers, walkers, sailors and more. Whitby is famous for its traditional seaside charm. Like Scarborough, you’ll find ice cream shops, cafes and donkey rides. No matter what time of year it is, you’ll find something to do in Whitby.


Staithes – 

Staithes is a beautifully idyllic fishing village sitting within a harbour and has a small sandy beach. Situated at the edge of the North York Moors National Park and with the stunning high cliffs, this really is a beautiful part of the world. Staithes is probably a better option for your date if you want to just walk and take in the surroundings.

Bridlington – 

With over a mile of sandy and shingle beaches, Bridlington is hugely popular with holiday-makers and day-trippers alike. Perfect for a day of sunbathing and swimming, or for a winter walk, it’s easy to see why this beach is so well-liked. The Princess Mary Promenade runs behind the beach and there are a number of cafes and places to eat. The beach also runs into Fraisthorpe beach if you fancy a longer walk where you can take in all the sights and sounds.
