Coast Radar : Who We Are

Coast Radar's UK and Ireland coast and beaches guide

Coast Radar is a travel publisher Inspiring people to visit the UK and Ireland coast and beaches.

Coast Radar – How it all began

I [Ian Barnes] created this travel site as I was getting frustrated in the number of websites I had to visit whilst searching for ideas on UK destinations for next years summer holiday. With a family in tow I needed something more than just a generic beach list or one of the many other specialised websites.

Through my great interest in the UK’s coastline and beaches I decided to start recording it, in doing this I created Coast Radar as a single platform to help others find what they needed quickly and easily. This in turn could provide a means for local coastal businesses to reach potential customers.
