Take the kids for a stroll out along the famous Redcliffe Jetty during your stay with us at Scarborough.
The Redcliffe Jetty has been around since 1885 but has undergone several renovations and replacements. The current jetty was completed in 1999.
It begins at Redcliffe Parade along the foreshore. Halfway out is a large shelter with tables, while further out there are more seats. Heritage lights mean it can be enjoyed during the day or at night. Nighttime is particularly spectacular.
Once you stroll all the way out along the jetty you’ll find the boats sheltering behind a small breakwall. Maybe you could even toss in a line and try to catch a fish.
The pretty surrounds, including the beaches and headlands, make it a stunning place to picnic or go fishing.
