Scarborough Beach is quite large, with plenty of room for sunbathing. It is advisable to take care when you are swimming at Scarborough Beach as there are a few rip currents just off the beach.
Scarborough is safe for swimming if you swim between the yellow and red flags and get out of the water when the shark patrol spotter planes and helicopter sirens sound. In 57 years I’ve never seen this many sharks near Scarborough Beach
There is a great relatively new playground on the grass at Scarborough Beach. The playground is small but interesting, our kids loved the fake rock climbing wall. There is soft fall on most of the playground area, with some sandy bits. This playground is very accessible, there is a ramp down from the car park and the soft fall is level with the concrete paving.
Scarborough Beach has some of the most developed facilities for surfing and is one of the busiest beaches on the strip. Located just a 20-minute drive from the center of town, this stretch of sand hosts impromptu beach volleyball matches and is ideal for surfing and windsurfing.
