Hayburn Wyke is a delightful and isolated bay 6 miles north of Scarborough with the beach being pebble and rocks and in some places difficult to access.
The word ‘ wyke ‘ is of Scandinavian origin and denotes a narrow inlet sheltered by headlands.
The surrounding woodland is protected as a nature reserve and managed by the National Trust and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Its most unusual feature is a twin waterfall which cascades over a rocky ledge onto the boulder-strewn beach.
The beach is a haven for wildlife and a wide range of plants – badgers, foxes, deer and many other small mammals, birds and insects.
Very limited facilities although an Inn nearby.
No water quality measurement available for Hayburn Wyke Beach.
