Staithes is a seaside village in North Yorkshire, England. Roxby Beck, a stream running through Staithes, is the border between the Borough of Scarborough and Redcar and Cleveland. Formerly one of the largest and most productive fishing centres in England, Staithes is now largely a tourist destination.
