More Information...

Cattersty Sands is a long, sand and shingle beach approximately midway between Hartlepool and Whitby. It offers fine views and a fairly sheltered location. The beach is intersected by a rocky pier which dates back to the areas mining days. This area of Yorkshire has a long history of iron-ore mining. The old jetty was built in 1886, for loading steamboats which transported the ore to Middlesbrough. The nearby Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum makes an interesting detour and has a courtyard picnic area. Cattersty Sands is a good destination for those seeking a bit of tranquillity. In summer, bathers can be seen on sunny days, cooling off in the North Sea waters. The 109-mile long Cleveland Way walking route passes adjacent to the beach.
