Runswick Bay

Discover Runswick Bay

Runswick Bay is one of the Yorkshire Coast’s prettiest destinations with its sweeping, sheltered bay and charming red roof cottages. The sandy beach, which once provided anchorage for brightly coloured fishing boats, is now a family favourite for rock pooling, fossil hunting and coastal walks, where you can admire the breathtakingly stunning sea views.

The Times and Sunday Times Travel recently named Runswick Bay Britains best beach in their top 50 round-up of the country's best beaches. Watch the video below to get a feel for why this unassuming yet beautiful bay deserves this title.
