Witsands Beach<p>​Witsands Beach, so named for its long stretch of white sand, is largely popular among kitesurfers on windy days. From the sea-cliff road, it is a steep walk down one of the sandy tracks to the beach. Another option is to drive down to the car park serving a boat-launching ramp, which is accessed from a road just outside the entrance gates to Soetwater Resort.</p><p>On a rocky headland known as ‘Die Eiland’ (the island), is a crayfish processing factory. Surfers know the ‘crayfish factory’ as a big-wave surf spot. Swimming is best limi​ted to calm days as powerful waves and rip currents may catch unaware swimmers. The beach is backed by rolling dunes that constitute a seasonal wetland area.</p>GP0|#b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6;L0|#0b0341be0-21cc-4396-b99d-5d2f2853ace6|Water sports;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#9c8c0075-e925-4024-a33f-8df78b8a4f92;L0|#09c8c0075-e925-4024-a33f-8df78b8a4f92|Dog walking<p>​Please see the Recreation and Parks Tariffs Booklet in the document download section below for more information about booking a facility.</p>GP0|#6fb82646-b411-48e6-b0d4-52898add42c8;L0|#06fb82646-b411-48e6-b0d4-52898add42c8|Parking;GTSet|#4be4596d-cdfe-41f7-a569-9d9c4e16c716;GP0|#bb94a941-26a1-451c-a284-25bdbb3d6c15;L0|#0bb94a941-26a1-451c-a284-25bdbb3d6c15|Boat launch and slipway;GP0|#8bd68e2b-e95a-448f-8442-6f516772a696;L0|#08bd68e2b-e95a-448f-8442-6f516772a696|Dogs off leads allowed<p>​​</p>Witsands, Scarborough<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
