Planning a holiday or day trip to the Scarborough beach, we give you a run down on what to find on the North and South Bay. If you feel up for the task you can actually walk from one headland to the other, roughly 3 miles from the Scarborough Spa to Scalby Mills. If you’re quick at walking a trip there and back should take you roughly 60 minutes.
The South Bay, is the more commercial side, with amusements, gift shops, ice-cream, fish & chips and other typical beach side wares. This beach is usually the busiest out of the two.
The North Bay, is the “quieter side”, it has had recent redevelopment, with beach huts, a bar, small supermarket. Due to the less commercialised aspect you can more than easily find a space to sit down and enjoy the beach and weather.
