Holidays in the UK do not necessarily have to be limited to city sights and food dates. The country is blessed with beautiful beach landscapes and offers memorable seaside holidays to tourists. Here are beach holiday destinations you must try when visiting the UK.
This beautiful beach in Dorset has won several awards, including the Blue Flag, the Seaside, and the Green Tourism Award that focuses on water quality, safety, and environmental management. It’s a perfect place for you and your family as this 7-mile white sand offers complete amenities – loos, huts, ice cream shots, and cafes. It’d be a shame to miss this warm beauty.
Cornwall is a country naturally endowed with seascapes and landscapes. Tourists should not miss visiting the picturesque Perranporth Beach where exciting water adventures happen – snorkelling, surfing, paddling, and so on. If you’re up for some cave explorations, then certainly this beach is your perfect match.
While there are new restrictions imposed in the summer, Perranporth welcomes your four-legged buddies. With your favourite pets, you spend a great time strolling and enjoying a nice afternoon tea by the sea.
This southern English beach is located in Devon, a charming county of medieval towns, rugged fossil cliffs, moorlands, and of course pristine beaches. Albeit shorter with only 3 miles, Woolacombe Beach has been awarded many times with the best beach status for its cleanliness and security. The area is safe, manned by lifeguards, and considered dog-friendly.
This Pembrokeshire gem is a refuge for many beach lovers who prefer a quiet atmosphere. Barafundle Bay sits in a rather secluded location, so you have to get yourself ready for some walking for about half a mile. But the effort is all worth it. The crescent-shaped bay looks outstanding in pictures and the stillness of the place brings true peace of mind. It’s also an ideal location for water paddling. If your troop wants an enjoyable picnic, Barafundle is the place to be in.
There are loads of lovely, sandy beaches to choose in Cornwall, from the wid-swept beaches of the north to the secluded coves of the south. Swanpool stands out because it is a small, quiet beach but within easy reach of shops, amenities and holiday accommodation in Falmouth, one of Cornwall’s most vibrant towns. There’s not a lot of facilities at the beach itself. There’s a car park, cafe and small watersports centre. That’s it. But it’s beauty lies in its simplicity and closeness to nature. It’s the perfect place in the Falmouth area for an early morning beach stroll or sea swim.
Sandwood is one of the unspoiled beaches in the UK, in Scotland specifically. It is a real treat for those wanting a quiet holiday. But the area can only be accessed by car and the treks are not exactly ideal for kids. The paths are well-laden but the stretch is about a 4-mile walk. However, the adventure seekers will truly benefit from the wild view of the bay, surrounded by imposing cliff formations.
If you like a refreshing way to experience the beach, visit the Bamburgh beach in Northumberland, England. Imagine the dreamy context of raging cold waters washing up the sandy shore that lined the castle platform, and you get the total Bamburgh beach experience.
The view of the Bamburgh castle is truly iconic. You would genuinely enjoy long walks in the morning.
Located in Lancashire, England, the Blackpool is a 7-mile stretch of fine sand and pure fun. It’s one of the few unique seasides built with not just one, but three piers for merriment. The entire family can enjoy exciting Ferris wheel rides, build sandcastles, and taste the variety of snacks available.
The UK still has more to offer than just the 6 lovely beaches described here. Where ever you want to go, make sure you bring sunscreen with you.
