    1. Anonymous Scarborough South Bay Beach
      Overall Rating:

      South Bay is Scarborough’s main beach, lots of shops and cafes. Very busy in summer when parking can be a problem. Popular with learner surfers with a surf school nearby. The safest beach for young kids with lifeguards on duty spring/summer/autumn.
