The Perfect British Beach Holiday Location

What with foreign travel being a bit of a pain in the arse this year - where would you recommend in the UK ?

I would have said my home town of Bournemouth until I saw who started the thread.



Aberdeen.

Hayle in Cornwall (nr St Ives) had a nice beach.

It may be rammed this time of year though.

Good point - Port Talbot is nice this time of year

Aberdeen does have a very nice big beach which for some reason never gets crowded.

Stevenage

Lyme Regis is rather lovely. Worthing is our nearest seaside place that isn't Brighton, and we love it. The beach goes on for miles and never gets crowded.

The West Wales Beaches are nice.

However being Wales it rains a lot.

bossab2 - 30 Jul 2020 13:03:59 (#11 of 153)

Brighton's all stones isnt it ? ( and gets rammed)

Agaliarept - 30 Jul 2020 13:04:01 (#12 of 153)

Come to Eastbourne boss!

Clean beaches, no noisy bars on the seafront, entire stretches of beach to yourself, you'd love it!

The warmest UK water I ever encountered was the north coast of the Isle of Sheppy.

However it is otherwise a bit lacking as a holiday destination.

enidcoleslaw - 30 Jul 2020 13:08:01 (#14 of 153)

Yes, Eastbourne is good. Broadstairs, too.

Ginmonkey - 30 Jul 2020 13:08:07 (#15 of 153)

Dungeness

bossab2 - 30 Jul 2020 13:09:59 (#16 of 153)

No sand at Dungeness.

Or beach bars.

Best beaches are in the Outer Hebrides, but campsites are closed this summer and there are few open facilities.

FrankieTeardrop - 30 Jul 2020 13:12:39 (#18 of 153)

Bournemouth seems to be popular, 500,000 people can't be wrong.

Most beautiful beaches are NW Scotland - Durness (and what dreams said, although I've only seen pictures of them).

Northumberland boasts fantastic beaches, too, possibly the best in England

bossab2 - 30 Jul 2020 13:12:47 (#19 of 153)

Whats Bournemouth like ? ( apart from popular,)

staticgirl - 30 Jul 2020 13:20:07 (#20 of 153)

Northumbrian beaches are fantastic. The beach below Bamburgh castle has a wonderful view and is a really great castle. I quite liked Seahouses nearby - nice if you like quiet little fishing ports/seaside resort. You also have access to the Farne Islands from there and it's near Hadrian's wall so all in all a great location.
