The coastal village of Runswick Bay is definitely one of my top beaches in North Yorkshire. The village is picturesque with narrow type alleyways leading you through it and onto the scenic views of the beach.
Fossil hunting is a must here as they are so easy to find and families will love finding them and exploring the rock pools.
You can also join the Cleveland Way National Trail here, which is 109 miles long
This seaside village is great for families and dog walkers. Its just off Whitby, and you can get local busses to the next town.
