We enjoyed a lovely visit to Staithes. The views down to the harbour are lovely with the fishing boats moored in the harbour. The beach is lovely to walk on any season but check the tide times before setting off.

This is an absolutely lovely town and at the heart of it is the beach .... at least when the tide's out. The whole area is well worth a visit though make sure you choose a pleasantly warm day if you're going to avail yourself...More
