Robin Hood’s Bay Beach

For a short walk head to Boggle Hole. Recognisable by the slight jutting out of the cliff and the fast-flowing beck. Here you will find Boggle Hole Youth Hostel a great cosy dog friendly stop. We can highly recommend the nachos which are ample to share and the coffee or tea and cake combo.

You can head further on to Stoupe Beck, a clue in the name you’ll know you are here by the running beck. The little footbridge being part of the Cleveland Way National Trail. You will find lots of pebbles and a sandy stretch of beach here.

Up for a beach hike? Carry on to the Ravenscar headland at the far end of the Bay. It will be slippy here and you will have to do a bit of rock scrambling. It will all be worth it for the magnificent sight you will encounter. Colonies of Grey and Common Seals.

It is possible to pick up the Cleveland Way from Stoupe Beck and Boggle Hole.
