Coast Radar - UK Beaches Guide

Coast Radar : Who We Are

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 coastal travel guide as I was getting frustrated by the number of websites I had to visit whilst searching for ideas on UK destinations for next year’s summer holiday. With a family in tow, I needed something more than just a generic beach list or one of the many other specialised activity 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.

Our logo represents what we are about – finding [radar] the best spots on the coast. The COAST is the blue sky and the sun, with the sun represented as a radar search, then moving to RADAR we have the blue sky with the darker blue representing the swells and waves of the sea.
