South Bay Beach
The sandy beach is a great place to walk along, build sand-castles or even venture into the North Sea.
The old town is situated on the South Bay between the harbour & the castle. Here you'll find interesting narrow old streets and steps that lead you up to the castle.
This is the place to find amusement arcades, souvenir shops, ice creams, fish & chips, cafes & pubs.
Scarborough harbour is an enjoyable place to explore. As well as the trawlers, cargo boats & private yachts, there are pleasure boats that take visitors out to sea & along the coast.
There is a good display of sand sculptures at South Bay - free to view from the promenade with donations to the artists welcome.
