Beach breaks in the UK
In the UK, you’re never more than 80 miles from the sea, meaning you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to taking a beach holiday. For many, a beach break conjures up images of traditional seaside resorts with their pleasure piers, ice cream parlours and sticks of rock. However, with thousands of miles of stunning and varied coastline, the UK has so much more to offer.
Breaks in Wales
If you prefer your coastal break to be a quiet affair, head for somewhere a little off the beaten track. Wales’ Oxwich Bay, on the Gower Peninsula, is an excellent choice with its 2.5-mile stretch of sandy beach and safe shallow waters.
Breaks in Cornwall
Not all castles you see at the beach are made of sand – the gorgeous medieval castle on St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall is set on a luscious green island just off the shoreline. Of course for uninterrupted views of the sea, Cornwall offers more than a handful of those too.
Breaks in Devon
A coastal break in the UK offers an ideal opportunity to either learn a new sport or improve your existing skills. If you’re a hoping to catch the perfect wave, head to surfing hotspot Croyde in Devon to make a splash.
Breaks in Brighton
If you’re after the buzz of city whilst on your beach break, you can enjoy the best of both worlds in Brighton. Along with a beautiful beach, in Brighton you’ll find fantastic shopping, museums, bars, cafés and restaurants too.
