“Escape the crowds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The love the drive from Kommetjie to Scarbourgh, past the surfers at Witsand and watching baboons.
The beach is great for kids and not too busy

“Beach Away from Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This isn't one of Cape Town's most trendiest beaches so all sorts of people will visit the quiet beach. It's quite a way out from the city so it feels like you're out of Cape Town, mean while you're just on the other side of the city. Lovely picnic beach.

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Scarborough's beaches are pristine; the ocean is the most glorious aquamarine colour and the sand is dazzling white. Scarborough has a vey untouched feel, and being off the beaten track you avoid the hustle and bustle of the more popular beaches and are therefore not overrun with tourists

I have lived in the South peninsula my entire life and see this beach often, it's always visually stunning and hasn't changed or been spoiled in any way

I love Scarborough Beach, situated in a lovely little village, its a great place to go to get away from the crowds - can be windy though!
