2. Scarborough South Bay
A popular seaside town in Yorkshire, thousands flock to the town of Scarborough each summer to make the most of South Bay Beach. With a choice of amusements, eateries, and bars along the pier, there’s plenty to keep the family entertained. If you would prefer to hit the waters, you can always rent a speedboat or enjoy a leisurely voyage on a sailboat.
The beach has retained much of its classic charm, from ice cream vans to donkey rides on the sands. Dogs can enjoy the beach during off-season months, but there are restrictions in place between 1 May and 30 September.
