Runswick Bay, Viking for “safe haven”, is a picturesque fishing village, located at the end of a valley to the sea like Staithes, just up the coast. With its sheltered bay and attractive red-tiled roofs, it’s a magnet for visitors, in and out of season. As well as traditional seaside activities like rockpooling and playing on the beach, this is a great place to hunt for fossils. The beautiful Cleveland Way passes above the village, offering fine views out to sea.
