The beach here is lovely and clean. It's kept to a very high standard and the areas allowed for dogs are marked clearly. We were very impressed by it and wold make the effort to go just for that.

I traveled to Whitby by Metro from Newcastle. So easy and quick and only cost a £5.00 for a day saver ticket. The beach is lovely and takes you all the way up to St Mary's bay Lighthouse which is great for watching the seals....More

May to october no dogs on west side but dogs can use the east side beaches (beneath the abbey) all year round which at low tide are fantastic
