I am lucky to live just a ten minute walk from Scarborough beach, and I must have visited it hundreds of times, and I still love it. I was down there on Sunday 22 Sept, and it was 23 degrees, and the beach was packed with people sunbathing, paddling, building sand castles and just generally enjoying themselves. You can get an ice cream, or fish & chips. There are donkey rides for the children and amusement arcades if it rains. Scarborough beach really is a marvellous place for all ages.
