Family holidays in the UK

Family holidays in the UK are riding on a wave of popularity. People tend to think this is as a result of cash strapped families looking for bargains but it is more to do with the variety that the UK has to offer.

The UK coastline is some 19,000+ miles if you take into account the main islands. This gives a great diversity from blue flag town beaches to hidden coves only reached by coastal paths.

On the UK Beach Guide we bring you all the information you need into one place, listing beaches, things to do, activities, places to stay and you can even book a table at a restaurant. Navigate around the UK using our interactive maps and when you find something good save it to your own trip planner to share with the family.

The UK has 61 regions or counties that have a coastal boundary and they all offer something different from the wilder Northumberland sandy beaches to the surf beaches of Cornwall.

For the family with younger kids then hit one of the many blue flag beaches or coves with rock pools to explore and facilities to keep everyone interested. For those with teenagers then head to the big activity beaches and have a go at surfing, body boarding or even kite surfing.

The UK Beach Guide was formed by a person that loves the diversity of the UK coast and we hope that you will find it useful, start exploring the UK coast and beaches with your kids and give them something to talk about!
