ROBIN HOOD'S BAY, a seaside resort in the Whitby parliamentary division of the North Riding of Yorkshire, England, 61 m. S.E. of Whitby by a branch of the North-Eastern railway. The bay itself is a shallow indentation of the coast, and is fringed with high picturesque cliffs, breached in places by steepsided narrow gullies. The old fishing village overhangs the cliffs, while the more modern watering-place is mostly built a little inland. A fine stretch of sandy shore is exposed at low tide.
