Sandsend is a quaint fishing villages located around 2 miles North of Whitby. Set in the midst of North Yorkshire’s Jurassic Coastline, at the point where Sandsend Beck flows into the North Sea, Sandsend offers over two and half miles of golden sandy beaches to enjoy, with views of both Whitby Abbey to the South and the North York Moors National Park to the West.
The village has a long standing history as a centre for local sea fishing, and keen anglers can still be seen catching a trove of cod, bass, coalfish, whiting and flounder here even today. As well as all kinds of sea fishing, tourists can enjoy the local cuisine and explore the local scenery and wildlife up Lythe Bank or further into Mulgrave Woods as you venture further in the North York Moors.
Sandsend’s natural qualities make it a firm favourite for the landscape photographers at the North Yorkshire Gallery and for that reason we often find ourselves returning here time and time again to get inspiration for our pictures, photos and canvas prints.
