Linger with loved ones at Sandsend

This is one of the North York Moors National Park coastal ambles.  It is a better alternative route for the Cleveland Way along the beack when the tide is out

With picture postcard cottages, babbling becks and stunning seascapes, Sandsend’s romantic setting will get your heart racing. The extensive 3-mile beach stretches all the way to Whitby with views of the imposing Whitby Abbey perched high on the clifftops. Walk along the beach at low tide and head back through the pretty village of Sandsend in time for sunset. Check tide times.
