Hunt Cliff Nature Reserve

About Hunt Cliff Nature Reserve

The Hunt Cliff reserve forms part of the cliffs at Saltburn, with Hunt Cliff being among the highest cliffs on the East Coast of England. The cliff face is of regional importance for nesting kittiwakes and other seabirds such as fulmar and cormorant. You can watch sea birds from the beach at Saltburn, or from the cliff top as they soar on thermals or return to their nests with food for their young.

A steep flight of steps, beginning just behind the Ship Inn car park, leads up to the reserve following signs for the Cleveland Way. There is also a steep winding path that avoids the steps but detours slightly before rejoining the Cleveland Way by following the path behind the Coastguard Cottages. The reserve itself is a maritime cliff edge with sloping grassland and cannot be accessed.
