Fantastic facilities including a great indoor pool, large entertainment venue, and popular restaurant help to make Riviera Bay the first choice for family fun holidays.

There's far too many places to go and attractions to visit, but that's where we come in. Tell us what you love to do - and our teams on the park will recommend some great days out. 

Please note that Riviera Bay occupies a stunning cliff top location with lovely views over St Mary’s Bay. A pebbly beach is accessible from the park via a coastal path however the gradient is steep and not suitable for the elderly or infirm.

A chance to walk the coast, valleys and moors of north Yorkshire. The proposed programme will include both linear and circular walks all of which will be at least 9 miles and hilly. We will walk coastal sections of the Cleveland Way, the Esk Valley and the North Yorkshire moors.

Further afield Rievaulx Abbey & Terrace, Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal Water Garden, Pickering Castle, Scarborough Castle and York.

Make your own way to Whitby. Once there, the coastal and Esk valley walks will use public transport, however; other walks will require a car.
