Pleasant place for the day

The first day we went there was an awful smell. Went back the next evening and there was around any longer. Spent the next day there enjoying the sun & sand.

I have been coming here since I was a small child. It is a magnificent beach. There is a couple good food trucks in the summer. I like it best in the winter when you can walk the entire beach and never see another person.

A little pricey if you're a non-resident, but well worth it for a full day on the beach. The beach itself is a long, beautiful sand beach, great for walking, especially at lower tides. There is sometimes a line waiting for the beach to open; if you get there late on a crowded day, it's a bit of a hike... More

Clean facilities, tons of parking. This is a great spot to visit with kids of all ages. Easy access to restrooms and parking across the street.

It was me, my husband, and two children. They charged my 13 yr old as an adult. It is a beach and nothing more. They do have a drink stand, not sure if they sell food. If you are planning on being there all day it might be worth it. Gets very crowded.

Scarborough Beach is a sandy area on the Atlantic. The beach area is not always clear of seaweed that accumulates near the ocean water itself. Lifeguards are present. During the summer months, the beach is highly populated to the point that it's often necessary to arrive mid-morning to grab a piece of beach real estate. This beach used to be... More

Great summer beach for teens and young families. Also enjoy going for a run here in the morning when the beach is quiet and beautiful!

Just a great beach, best for walking at outgoing tide. There is a bit of a walk to get to the beach, but a stroller or wheelchair can manage it.

$10 person or even $5 person is too much for seniors to pay to get into this beach! The walk in is long and on a splintered wood boardwalk so wear shoes. I will visit the beach across the street with my free senior pass instead of this one. This beach is good for surfers , not for families with... More
