Oliver’s Mount and the Mere, Scarborough, North Yorkshire

Personally, I love the Scarborough beach. Although, a lover of Blackpool coastal beach in the past, I recently shifted my love in favour for Scarborough for several reasons. Whether you are coming from the South or the North, the lush green forest and country side feel on the way is alone worth a thousand poetic expressions. When I, first time, saw the fantastic view of the seaside town of Scarborough, I simply fell in love with it. The deep blue seas on one side and the beautiful thick forest mountain on the other give the beach a unique outlook among the British coasts.

Robin Hood’s Bay campsite is a few miles away situated between Whitby and Scarborough. The picturesque North Yorkshire coast offers bike trails, walking tracks, BBQ plains and a lot more.
