Scarborough is a top spot just a hop, skip & a jump on from Sumner.
The paddling pool is perfect for pre-schoolers: love the rainbow fountain and soft pool surface. The beach has a little stream that flows out to sea: kids can play and explore here as well as testing the waves.
Pack a bucket and spade, togs and sunscreen, and you’re set! Grab an ice cream from the Kiosk, or lunch from the Ocean Cafe and Bar.
There’s also a playground with basic equipment including slides, swings, and horse. There are picnic tables, a BBQ, and public toilets (but no separate changing area).
We visited Scarborough in November 2015 – 28 degrees!
