Whitby Beaches - West Beach on the Map
Find Whitby West Beach on the west side of town, accessed from adjacent to the West Pier, or from the West Cliff.
This map is interactive.
Whitby Beaches - Tate Hill Beach
The beach is sandy and pleasant with quieter, calmer waters than the main beach - which makes it safer for small children to play and bathe.
The beach tends to be a little quieter than the main beach, but as it is so small it doesn't take much to make it feel quite busy.
You can park up by the Abbey and walk down the 199 steps to access the beach, which is just near to the East Pier....
...or access the beach through town (walking only)
On the eastern side of the East Pier there are rock pools to explore - but do take care - this area can be very dangerous in rough seas, and/or when the tide is coming in.
Whitby Beaches - Tate Hill Beach on the Map
Find Whitby Tate Hill Beach on the east side of town, accessed from adjacent to the East Pier, off Church Street/Tate Hill.
This map is interactive.
The Whitby beaches are a great place to enjoy all the fun of the seaside:
