Planning a trip to the coast and looking for the nearest beach? Our UK beach lists and beach search will help you discover the best beach.  Then, for each beach, we will answer questions about location, rural or town, sandy or pebble, rockpools, tide times, weather forecast, dog restrictions, closest beach cafes and provide general information on the beach, its facilities and the surrounding area.

If you are looking for an award-winning beach, you can browse our UK Blue Flag lists or our UK Seaside Award lists.

Have a dog? Finding a dog-friendly beach can be hard work, and our dog-friendly beach lists will help direct you to the best locations that allow dogs.
