The most important thing is to remain active and to love what you are doing.

Be Active by the Sea

Ocean air has a lot of health benefits. The most common is that the negative ions in sea air accelerate your ability to absorb oxygen and balance your serotonin levels, a body chemical linked with mood and stress. This is exactly why so many people feel so relaxed, and energized after a few hours on the beach.

Hit the Waves and go Surfing




Here in Saltburn we have a great history of Surfing. Be it friends getting together, people coming on their own, or the awesome surf competitions that have been help here over the years. Everyone with a board loves to try the waves here at Saltburn. According to the Magic Seaweed website:

” Saltburn Beach was one of the first outposts of surfing on England’s east coast and has developed into one of the UK’s real wave-riding hubs. The beach is a fairly average proposition, with the occasional quality sandbar forming close to the pier. To the south sits a sand and cobblestone break called Penny’s Hole with some lovely lefts and rights. At the far southern end, beneath the towering cliff, is Saltburn Point, a high quality slabstone reef that wakes occasionally in the lined up swells, throwing out fast, reeling righthanders.”

And the best thing is the conditions are perfect for all skillsets.

So what are you waiting for??

The largest in the dolphin family is the orca(Killer Whale), that can grow to over 30 feet long. And the smallest, the Maui dolphin, that is just five feet long.

Dolphins feed mostly on fish and squid, which they track using echolocation. Dolphins use this built-in sonar to locate the squid and also receive information about its size and shape.


The dolphin is a symbol of protection for its presence in stories about saving the drowning sailors or other humans in distress. Keep your eyes peeled when by the Sea as they are seen quite often when coming close to shore to feed.

Keep Saltburn tidy - be an eco warrior!

With around 2.5 Million tourists visiting Saltburn each year, the amount of litter has increased drastically. Especially along the beach, we come across more and more leftover rubbish that is left behind. We all love Saltburn and want to enjoy it as much as we can. For this reason, we ask everyone to do their bit and take their rubbish home with them. Furthermore, you can also have a walk around with a bag and litter picker and be an eco-warrior. This way you will get good exercise and do something great at the same time.

Not only are you burning calories, you’re keeping the place looking beautiful.  As well as that you are stopping all this awful rubbish coming into their habitats and potentially harming them or worse.

There are pickers and bags on the lower promenade for anyone who fancies a beach clean.

Go fossil hunting along the beach

"Through the study of fossils i had already been initiated into the mysteries of prehistoric creations" - Pierre Loti.

Go along the North Yorkshire coast and find long dead life from millions of years ago. In the Jurassic period there were many forms of life sprouting up around the land and sea. When they died some of their body parts either fell or ended up in a watery environment.

Here, soft tissues quickly decompose leaving the hard bones or shells behind. Over time sediment builds over the top and hardens into rock. Which is how fossils are formed. 

As well as Saltburn you might find fossils along the coast at Staithes, Runswick, Robin Hood’s Bay, and Boggle Hole. So head to the beach for a family day out and see what you can find!
