Britain’s Best Beaches
Britain might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of beach holidays, but it is actually a fantastic destination for seaside resorts. You can find stunning locations on the coastline, which make perfect spots for enjoying fish and chips, ice cream and spectacular views. The water might be brisk, but don’t neglect to pack your swimsuit for these gorgeous British beaches – take along a bucket and spade, too!
Fistral Beach, Newquay, England
Newquay is perhaps the most popular seaside destination in Britain, boasting numerous great attractions for families: you will find a zoo, bowling alley, cinema, aquarium, waterpark, museums and much more. However, the destination is best known for being home to waters that are ideal for surfing.
Fistral Beach is world-famous as a surfing destination, but boasts something for everyone. You can participate in coasteering, sit back at the café and watch the waves crashing, or simply relax on the sands. Stay at Tolcarne Beach, where you can go glamping, or book a room at The Headland hotel.
Beaches by Loch Enoch, Galloway, Scotland
Located beneath mountains that create an impressive setting, the Loch Enoch is a beautiful body of water located in the Southern Uplands. Beaches on its shores are great stargazing sites, and are ideally located for hillwalkers, hikers and climbers.
A huge plus is that you are permitted to wild camp at Loch Enoch; this is the perfect way to make the most of this fantastic destination. Make sure you take along a sturdy tent that can withstand any winds. Millet Sports stocks a great range, which you can explore here. Prices are below RRP, and international shipping and free UK delivery are available.
Rhossili Bay, Swansea, Wales
Winner of the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2013 award for the UK’s best beach, Rhossili Bay is certainly popular among tourists and locals alike. Its unspoilt natural beauty and three-mile stretch are what attract many visitors, but the ability to surf, the Helvetia shipwreck and nearby quaint Rhossili village are also draws.
Get a room overlooking the bay at The Worm’s Head Hotel – the webcam shows what kind of views you can expect! If you prefer, there is also the Hillend Camping & Caravan Park, Pitton Cross Caravan & Camping Park, or the Three Cliffs Bay Holiday Park to stay at.
