Lovely beaches, but would be better in summer as many facilities not open in winter. Whitby is a better bet for out of season breaks.

You can only really take in the spectacular views by leisurely walking along the shore, especially by walking all the way around the peninsula on all (three?) levels. That way, you see everything from different vantage points. Don't forget your camera!

Scarborough Castle is a very interesting place to visit, the staff there are friendly and helpful. They lend out audio devices (similar to mobile phones) which you listen to at you own pace as you walk around. Its a long climb up to the site, but the views of the town and the North and South Bays are spectacular and worth the effort!
