Our Explorers Skye and Luna wanted to share North Yorkshire’s best-kept secret with you – Boggle Hole Beach. This dog friendly beach is the perfect place to sniff out an adventure.
Home of the Boggle Monster
This beach is named after the story of the ‘Boggle Monster’ that is said to live in the cave at the opening of the cove that leads on to the beach.
Plenty to Explore
Skye and Luna particularly loved playing chase up and down the sandy flats as well as taking in plenty of sniffs and exploring the base of the cliffs and the rock pools. The beach itself stretches from Robin Hoods Bay right up to cliffs at the opposite end which is great of you fancy a lovely couple of hours strolling along the shoreline and the variety of views make the perfect backdrop for a photo!
Boggle Hole is tucked a little ways away from main roads so we kept a close eye on signs to avoid getting lost. There is a car park at the top of a slight hill only a 5-10 minute walk from the beach which offers free parking. Just up from the beach is a Youth Hostel and Cafe, on our visit the cafe was only open for takeaway due to COVID but there is outdoor seating perfect for somewhere to have a snack or cuppa.
Make sure to plan on time to visit Boggle as the tide comes in VERY quickly, overall we really enjoyed our first time there and we will definitely go again and hopefully do a bit more exploring!
Thank you for sharing this beautiful place! We are hoping to plan a trip next year this way and will add this to our list of places to visit!
Aw! This makes me so homesick for Yorkshire! I miss the coast (and everything else) so much, the fish and chips isn’t as good on the west coast either…
