Scarborough has been a popular seaside resort for over 100 years now and it’s no wonder with two such lovely beaches on the town’s doorstep. So if you’re looking for a day out at the beaches why not read on and find out what’s on offer.

The South Bay is the closest to the town and usually the one that draws the crowds, with such lovely golden sands and town side beach front it’s no wonder this is the case. The beach itself makes for a fantastic family friendly atmosphere with activities all year round. You can enjoy the beautiful, if slightly cooler waters and go for a swim, or enjoy the sand art that’s frequently created on the beach. There’s the award winning Donkey rides throughout the year too and sand castle competitions are often held during the summer months.

If the South Bay sounds a little too busy for you then a day out to the North Bay may be for you. The North Bay is usually the quieter of the two, a great way to escape the crowds of the South Bay, as it’s a little more remote. The bay backs onto a series of cliff side gardens, which mean that there a lot less shops and amusement arcades but still enough places to grab a bite to eat. Part of the North Bay allows dogs too so it’s a great place for a stroll for any dog walkers out there.

So if you’re staying in one of the many Scarborough Hotels then why not consider a trip to the beaches!
