Being an island we are spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches in the UK. From the sunny English Rivera to the rugged Northumberland coast with it’s historic Norman castle, there is something for all tastes. Here’s a selection of our picks across the country:
- Crosby Beach Liverpool
With beautiful views and life-like sculptures by Antony Gormley spread out along the shore of Crosby Beach and stretching out one kilometre into the sea, the beach is a must-visit if you are in Liverpool. The artwork titled Another Place, is made up of casts of the artist’s body, each one staring out to sea. The beach itself is non-bathing as there can be changing tides.
2. Bamburg Castle Beach, Northumberland
A large sandy beach with the backdrop of the imposing Bamburgh Castle, a former Norman stronghold. It’s perfect for brisk walks with the dog any time of year and popular with surfers. Bamburg Castle Beach is regarded as one of the most consistent surf spots along that stretch of coast. Lessons and surf kit hire are available for those who want to have a go.
3. Woolacombe Beach, Devon
Winner of TripAdvisor’s best beaches in Britain award for 2016 so of course, this had to make the list! With three miles of golden sand, clean water, lots of local activities and traditional pubs, we can see why Woolacombe continues to be a family favourite.
4. Porthmeor Beach, St Ives
Neighbouring the iconic Tate St Ives building, the Porthmeor beach is a sandy heaven popular with the many tourists and locals alike. It’s safe to swim, surfing is good, with excellent water cleanliness. The bustling centre of St Ives is just minutes away, where you’ll find trendy cafes, traditional old English pubs, art galleries and lots more.
