Cayton Bay

Cayton bay lies between Filey and Scarborough and has a good sized sandy beach protected by an outer reef of rock with rocky patches in the bay. Cayton Bay is accessible at the North end near Scarborough by a path down from  Knipe Point and by paths near the middle of the bay near the car parking. Cayton Bay has a temporary toilet at the bottom of the path and a small shed serving snacks and beach goods but that is all. Cayton is a favourite haunt of surfers in big Northerly seas and anglers on a night in winter gales. It is not a resort as such but does have a large caravan park at the top of the cliffs. Parking is free on the remains of the old road at Cayton Bay but there is also a pay car park with a barrier near the surf shop.

There are a couple of world war 2 block houses on Cayton Bay beach. It is worth looking at the back of one of them for some remarkable art work
