The North Beach is quiet and sandy, a family beach backed by hills and cliffs, with the castle dominating the skyline overlooking the beach. The Sea Life Centre is two minutes' walk to the north and five minutes' walk from Peasholm Park.
Scarborough's North Beach offers fantastic opportunities for surfing some really good waves. If you are not a seasoned surfer but would like to give the sport a try, then why not get some lessons from one of Scarborough's surf schools?
Fishing from the sands in either the North or South Bays can yield billet, codling, flatfish, whiting and mackerel, and is best at low tide.
