25. Whitby's beaches
Scenes of Whitby and surrounding area
At the swing bridge you bear left down Pier Road to get to the west beach, or right over the swing bridge and go left down Church Street to reach the east beach and the impressive east cliffs.
Quite a setting for a good old fashioned fish and chips at the seaside.
The West Cliff beach
The way down to the west beach and the east pier is ahead.
The old lighthouse lies before you as you go down onto the west beach.
The traditional donkeys on the west beach.
Overlooking the West Cliff beach is an old 12 pounder gun that was salvaged from the wreck of the steamer "AFRICAN TRANSPORT" off Kettleness by Mr. J. P. Stevenson.
Not too crowded today!
Best to keep moving on this sunny, but breezy day - Sandsend Bay in the distance.
You can walk along by the sea below West Cliff and when the tide is out you can continue on the beach to Sandsend (see page 3).
The East Cliff beach and cliffs
Looking across from West Cliff to the East Cliff beach below the old town, Abbey and Parish Church
Some cute sculptured concrete in the form of fossils beyond the east beach BUT appropriately lying below the 'Jurassic' east cliffs.
