Along the Atlantic seaboard, Scarab Village represents a rocky stretch of sand next to a tranquil suburb nestled at the foot of Slangkop and Red Hill. The beach hosts thundering waves, making it well-known for surfing. Body boarding, kite surfing, kayaking, and windsurfing are also popular here. Visitors like the many rock pools and scenic windswept beach atmosphere. Take a dip or observe fisherman bringing their daily catch. The site offers minimal amenities; you'll find a couple of restaurants and a small shop here.
