Many people don’t necessarily think of hitting the beach when they visit the UK, but in fact it is absolutely loaded with beautiful coastline, alas the water isn’t always the warmest but the views will make up for that. Many of these beaches lie untouched, wildly beautiful and free from crowds of people. Others are popular spots among surfers (yes, there’s surfing in Britain) and water sports enthusiasts. Brilliant blue waters, silky white sands, beautiful dunes and luscious landscapes make up these 15 best beaches in Britain.
Located in South Devon is a beautiful beach, sheltered in a bay surrounded by evergreens and pines with water so turquoise in color it almost feels Mediterranean. The water here is crystal clear, in large part due to the small smooth pebbles that make up the beach and the ban of dogs on the beach. Perfect for families, Blackpool Sands has lifeguards on duty during the summer months, along with plenty of amenities to keep everyone happy. A floating raft in the summer months is one of the most popular activities as many choose to sunbathe on it, or dive off into the blue waters. With a café producing local and organic meals, a shop renting out water sports equipment and events happening all summer long, Blackpool Sands is the perfect Britain beach getaway.
This stunning island beach is known as the “Beach of Romance” due in part to a story about a runaway princess that fled here after a love affair gone wrong. This three-mile stretch of sand is backed by impressive sand dunes and has been awarded for having extremely clean water. The beach is cleaned daily, although they are no lifeguards on duty and therefore parents should be aware of that before they visit. Just beyond this beach is the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve, a 1.5 acre piece of property that is popular with bird-watchers and wildlife enthusiasts. There are over 10 miles of footpaths for hiking enthusiasts and visitors should keep their eyes open for the elusive red squirrel that lives here. Stunning scenery, a laid back atmosphere and a lovely island to explore makes the beaches here the perfect getaway.
