Four stunning UK beaches to enjoy this summer!

Posted on April 05 2021

One of the upsides of this last year has to be realising that our little Island is full of amazing staycation locations! Something I potentially would not have been forced to discover if our holidays abroad had not been cancelled and banned. We have some truly spectacular beaches along our coastlines, giving us the perfect opportunity to whip out our modest swimwear. Here are some of our favourites:

1) Achmelvich Beach, Scotland

Sandy Achmelvich beach in Scotland, UK

This beach is located in Achmelvich, in the North-West of Scotland and is described as one of the most sensational beaches in the UK. If you are looking for soft, white sands, secluded coves, tranquillity, and clear blue/green waters, Achmelvich is your beach. It is an ideal location for water sports, rock pool fishing and a photoshoot or two! With the added bonus of possible sightings of dolphins, porpoises and if you’re lucky the minke whale.

2) Tenby Beaches, Wales

This beautiful beach is the Castle beach, located in the picturesque town of Tenby in Pembrokeshire, Wales. In addition to the beach, you can explore the charming, cobbled street town packed with restaurants, cafes and shops.

One of the things I love about the beaches in Tenby is that they truly have something for everyone. The ‘Blue Flag’ Castle beach, although small, boasts the title ‘Sunday Times Beach of the Year’ and is ideal for families with young children. This summer why don’t you try out some new experiences with canoeing, sailing, water skiing and body boarding. If you visit tag us in your photos, we’d love to see your skills!

3) Woolacombe Beach, England

Woolacombe Beach is one of Devon’s best beaches, boasting miles of uninterrupted soft, golden sands overlooking spectacular views. Once here, it is very easy to see why this beach has so many awards under its belt. The awards include the ‘Blue Flag’ for twenty years running and ‘Britain’s Best Beach’ by TripAdvisor for two consecutive years! It is known as a hotspot for surfing and other activities include canoeing, jet skiing, kayaking, kite surfing, sailing and swimming. Be sure to explore the village of Woolacombe, located at the north end of the beach, for the B&B’s, cafes and restaurants.

4) Fistral Beach, England

Located just West of Newquay town in Cornwall, Fistral Beach is known as UK’s most popular surfing destination.

Backed by high cliffs, dunes, and a long stretch of golden sand where you’ll have access to cafes, restaurants, showers, toilets and surfing instructors. It is home to all the top surfing competitions, including Broadmasters Surf Championships, National Surf Championships and the Famous Night Surf, it truly is one of Cornwall’s pride and joy!
