Scotch Beach is accessible from a small parking area located on its namesake road leading to the right-of-way. The area is particularly popular with the island's summertime workers. It actually provides access to the north end of Fred Benson Town Beach. Volleyball is a popular pastime here, and nets can usually be found set up for both impromptu games and tournaments. Surf can also be good at times. Sand is fine and typically free of rocks. Activities include swimming and walking.
