When I think of the best beaches in the world, England is not the first place that comes to mind, but if you don’t mind a spot of drizzle occasionally and the odd light breeze, England’s beaches can be the perfect weekend away you need for you and your family.
Watergate Bay, Newquay
If you ask any Brit what the best beaches are in England, there will most likely be a mention of Cornwall. And it’s easy to see why these shores are so iconic to the British population.
Watergate Bay is 3 miles of soft, golden sand beach with cliffs and caves lining the shore from Newquay to the North Cornwall coast. Enormous waves from the Atlantic produce the perfect spray for surfers and kite surfers while peregrine falcons, sea gulls and fulmar’s wheels watch on overhead.
Stay in an idyllic beach hut by the shore before popping down to the sand to spot strawberry anemones and crabs amongst the rock pools and book a surf lesson with Cornwall’s elite surfing academies.
Blackpool Sands, Devon
If you fancy the atmosphere of a beach holiday without breaking out the passports, Blackpool Sand beach could be your perfect getaway this summer.
Just three miles southwest of Dartmouth, Blackpool Sands is a sheltered and peaceful crescent on the South coast waiting to be discovered by you and your family. Popular with families, this beach’s clean and calm, turquoise waters is a great spot for swimming as well as sailing.
Studland Bay, Dorset
There’s nothing quite as nice as fine sand beneath your feet, and I know what you’re thinking – powder-white sand in the Maldives, but what if I could promise you this luxury in England?
As a glorious slice of the natural, English coastline, Studland Bay has miles upon miles of soft sand beaches and heathland with views of Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. A for fans of watersports, this beach is a heaven as the Atlantic blows in the wintry surf.
