Although it’s a bit cold, there’s no reason to stop enjoying Scarborough’s seaside attractions. A brisk walk on the beach is enjoyable, even if there’s no chance of sunbathing.
You can even just stand and look at the waves, no brisk exercise needed. Experts have said that the best way to ward off any winter blues is to get as much sunlight as possible, even if it may seem cold.
Get a cup of coffee from a nearby café to warm your hands and then just head to the beach. The swishing sound of the waves will calm your mind, and the salty smell of the sea bring you joy.
The Dangers of the Sea
Unless you’re a seasoned and hardy swimmer, we don’t recommend swimming in this weather. Some people enjoy cold weather swimming, but for the young, elderly, or anyone even slightly less than healthy, it can lead to coughs, colds, or even hypothermia.
You should also be careful of slippery rocks. Always reach the beach by concrete steps and walkways, and don’t even think of climbing down by other means.
Make sure you don’t get cut off on inaccessible parts of the beach when the high tide rises.
If you’d like to go barefoot and paddle, do be very careful of sharp shells, and undesirable rubbish left in the sand. Don’t cut your feet.
You should also watch out for jellyfish, as even a dead jellyfish, cast up on the shore, can sting.
