Britain’s Top 10 Beaches

Posted by Jody on July 26, 2011

From the stunning white cliffs of Dover to the haunting shores of Holy Island, with over 10,000 miles of coastline to discover… somehow the good folks at VisitBritain.com have chosen the Top 10 British Beaches!  Even though I thought that I had traveled to some of the most gorgeous shoreline in all of England, none of my previous beach jaunts even made the Top 10 British Beaches list.

These beaches must be absolutely amazing!

When I think of surfing, Great Britain isn’t the first destination to pop into my mind, but Bournemouth (pictured above), located in Dorset, is “set to become one of the best surf spots in the UK!” They opened the first artificial surf reef in Europe here in 2009.  And if you’ve already been to the “excellent surf schools” in Croyde Bay, then you probably don’t need this article to tell you that it is notably the best beach for catching waves in North Devon.

If you’re looking for more traditional English seaside diversions, then the article recommends Lancashire. You’ll find everything from donkey rides to deck chairs to miles of sand at Blackpool beach.  Just a reminder… roller coaster first, ice cream later!

And the next time I’m across the pond, I know that I’ll definitely search out Sinclair’s Bay. This beach, in Caithness, sounds more like a dream with its soft white sand and not one, but two, 16th century castles standing sentinel.  Four miles of uninterrupted sand, stunningly blue water,  the prospect of watching whales and porpoises….  Now that’s my cuppa’ tea!

Rounding out the Top 10 British Beaches are Porthcurno (Cornwall), West Wittering (West Sussex), Abereiddi Blue Lagoon (Pembrokeshire), Holy Island (Northumberland), Great Bay (St. Martin’s, Isles of Scilly) and Holkham (Norfolk).

You’ll want to check out  the entire article for more descriptions and the many links to all of the Top 10 British Beaches!

Cheers!

    Wow Bournemouth beach, that brings a lot of great memories flooding back to me. We spent hours on the beaches there as kids during our school holidays 🙂

      My daughter and I hopped along the seafront from just north of Hythe to the beaches of Brighton. Someday I hope to pick up where I left off! England’s coastline is amazing! ~Thanks for stopping by!
