The beach is made up of the softest, whitest sands which seem to stretch on for miles and is the perfect excuse for a family day out. With only a bucket and spade, the younger children will be kept amused for hours; for older children there are endless possibilities for amusement; you can go fly a kite or go for a swim in the ocean. Swimming is very safe here, as is the surfing and body boarding opportunities. In summer, you can even partake in a spot of beach cricket and other events held by the outdoor amphitheatre.
If you think that the beach is beautiful by day, then be prepared to be blown away by it at night. Once the sun sets, the foreshore becomes a truly exciting place to be. There are many restaurants and cafes up and down the promenade, as well as picnic and BBQ spots, parks and gazebos. Whether you are here as part of a special couple or as a family unit, it certainly will be the perfect spot.
If you can’t bear to be parted too long from the beach, there are many holiday homes and self-contained accommodation in Scarborough overlooking the beach.
