Scarborough beach is a 15 min walk from here. Uber ride is $5-7. Bus is $2.20 to the beach and the bus stop is 400 mtrs from my home. You can also get to the city centre by bus also.
There's lots of groovy bars and restaurants down by the beach and of course our amazing coastline to take in.
There is also an awesome cafe by day (opens at 8am Tues-Sun) at the end of our street and from 5pm it turns into an awesome wood fired Pizzeria.
