Four Stunning Beaches To Visit In The UK

The UK is richly blessed with hundreds of miles of accessible coastline, and it has some exceptionally fine beaches. Many are these are just a short walk away from a camping or caravanning site. Here are four must-see beaches in England, Wales, and Scotland.

Rhossili Bay, South Wales

Rhossili Bay not far from Swansea is regularly voted Britain’s best beach in polls, and with just one look you can see why! The three miles of smooth sands, backed by gentle green hills, are the perfect combination. It is also a dog friendly beach, and is ideal for watersports.  It is situated near the small village of Rhossili, and there are many facilities nearby.

Woolacombe Sands, Devon

This is one of north Devon’s most popular beaches, while still being just that little bit less packed than Cornwall. It is ideal for families, with miles of golden sands, rock pools, and dunes to play in. It is perfect for surfers, and it has a lifeguard service during peak periods. It’s right by the main village, with plenty of conveniences on hand.

Balnakeil Beach, near Durness, Scottish Highlands

Scottish beaches are something else altogether! This stunning stretch of white sand north of Durness is also home to the remains of Balnakeil Church, which was built in 1614. In the background lurks the romantic Highland mountains, and the beach is famous for its beautiful sunsets. 

Barafundle Beach, Wales

This beautiful bay in Pembrokeshire is celebrated for its golden sand and turquoise seas, which give it the feel of the Caribbean. It is quite isolated, with the nearest carpark a half mile walk away. The path is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs and prams, so access is limited. On the plus side, it rarely gets overcrowded.
