Observation City Guide

About Observation City

The popular beaches of Scarborough are just 2km (1.2mi) south, where the rich and backpackers are catered for with accommodation near the beach at Observation City. The surf won't be good unless there is a rare combo of huge swell, E winds and well formed sandbanks. Check one of the webcams located on the beach patrol tower.

Plenty of kiters in the afternoon breeze.
