A favourite beach has to have a first visit

We hear a lot of people saying this is our favourite beach and we always head down to such and such part of the coast as it is great because…

Although this is great people visit the coast but we believe too many are missing out on some hidden gems and if they would only look up they may find some more favourites.

The UK has over 31,000 km of coastline, this is a lot of beaches, bays and coves to explore. From town beaches to hidden coves accessible after a coast walk.

At The UK Beach Guide we provide interactive maps, text search tools and the ability to record and share your ideas in out trip planning tools.

For each beach we describe the beach itself, list facilities, show an interactive map of the area, photos and give you some ideas of things to do in the area. If you like the beach just add it to your trip.

Once you visit a beach why not leave a comment on facebook, twitter or our website so that other’s can benefit from your visit? Also, if you spot we got something wrong then let us know and we will adjust our information.

If you think about it your favourite beach had to have a first visit so why not explore, have some more first visits and possibly find some more favourites.
