Upgang is a small beach on the north side of Whitby. It is sandwiched between Whitby Sands and Sandsend Beach, just next to Whitby golf coarse.

The beach is as snag free as any beach gets, and is well known for the surf it throws up. This can often make it a very easy and productive area for fishing, especially during the summer.

The steps down to Upgang

Access to the beach is via the steps and walkways which have been built into the side of the hill overlooking the beach. They are definitely not for people with mobility problems.

Foot bridge at Whitby golf coarse

Passing through the golf club is a track which leads down to this area just behind the slipway (from where this photo is taken). Some anglers park their vehicles here. However, the track is a recognised as part of the Cleveland Way footpath, and to access it by car the gate from the main road must be opened. This gate clearly states that the path is for emergency vehicles only. If you decide to park here you take full responsibility for your actions.
