TripAdvisor Best UK Beach Awards

Is there anything quite as blissful as an amble by the seashore? TripAdvisor have recently announced the best beaches in the UK as nominated by millions of real travellers at the 2016 Traveller s Choice Awards 1 and you may find one or two of them near us This picturesque, sandy cove is overlooked by the ancient ruins of Tenby Castle. When you ve had your fill of soaking up the views and plunging your toes into the soft golden sand, you can take a boat trip at low tide and meet the resident Monks of historic Caldey Island (we hear they make lovely shortbread!).

Pendine Sands Holiday Park 30 minutes drive One thing springs to mind at the mention of glorious Goodrington Sands, and that s water sports! This long, sandy stretch of beach offers super safe swimming conditions , perfect for taking a dip, getting out on a pedalo, paddle board or, if you re feeling brave, you can even try your hand at beginners windsurfing! Little uns will love exploring the rock pools at low tide.

Plus, for those with a passion for fishy facts, plan a visit to Seashore Centre , a small, Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust funded museum dedicated to educating youngsters on local marine life. It may be small, but completely free so definitely worth popping in! Torquay Holiday Park 19 minutes drive.

Undoubtedly one of the most famous beaches on the list, Fistral has long found fame as king of the waves for its laid back vibes and world class surf. Annually playing host to top notch sporting events such as Boardmasters and the National Surf Championships there s never a dull moment on this iconic stretch of sand. Plus, if catching gnarly waves isn t your cup of tea, there s no finer place to pop yourself down for a spot of people watching; and the many nearby shops, boutiques, caf s and restaurants are sure to draw your eye!

White Acres Holiday Park, Newquay Holiday Park, Crantock Beach Holiday Park , Holywell Bay Holiday Park all within 17 minutes drive. A beach as close to our hearts as it is to our holiday park! Step straight from your beach-side accommodation and touch down on the cool sands of Nairn East Beach.

Drink in awe-inspiring views, framed by imposing mountains, across the Moray Firth to the Black Isle. We highly recommend sticking around to witness one of Nairn s impressive sunsets, or get up early and you might even catch a glimpse of the resident Moray Firth dolphins at play! Steps from us!

A short stroll from your accommodation at Nairn Lochloy Holiday Park. Wow! is probably the best way to describe this beach.

Visit Pembrokeshire We couldn t agree more! The pristine sand and jewel-blue waters of Barafundle have often found it likened to a Caribbean beach . An ideal spot to unpack a picnic, have a paddle or simply sit back and watch the waves softly lap against the shore.

Plus, due to its secluded position (get ready for a bit of a hike from the car!) you ll rarely find this little slice of paradise crowded , you may even find you have it all to yourself in cooler months. Pendine Sands Holiday Park 50 minutes drive. Oh how to describe the allure of Crantock Beach; set at the bottom of a quintessentially charming village and surrounded by powdery dunes, Crantock offers goose-pimple inducing views from the moment its great expanse comes into view.

Crystal clear turquoise waters of the Gannel Estuary flow past impressively luxurious homes set into the hillside (we like to pick which one we d live in every time!). An all-time favourite with both ourselves and our guests alike, if you haven t spent a day at Crantock Beach you re most certainly missing out! Right here!

Crantock Beach Holiday Park 10-15 minutes walk Of Newquay s many superb beaches, Porth is certainly worth a mention. Protected by headlands on both sides, this sheltered, shallow watered beach makes an ideal base for families to pitch up for a day of seaside shenanigans. Once your bellies are full of ice cream and your sandcastle masterpieces fully adorned, take a stroll along the narrow footbridge to Porth Island and tread the ancient pathways of an impressive Iron Age cliff top castle.

White Acres Holiday Park, Newquay Holiday Park, Crantock Beach Holiday Park, Holywell Bay Holiday Park all within 17 minutes drive. Set just 10 minutes down the road from bustling Great Yarmouth, grassy cliffs give way to a huge expanse of smooth golden sand and buckets of Edwardian charm at Gorleston. Enjoy the Pitch & Putt, bowling greens, tennis courts, children s playgrounds, gardens and even a model yacht pond; all perfectly positioned within reach of this well-loved beach.

Cherry Tree Holiday Park 11 minutes drive. Of all the beaches on this list, Sandbanks really makes a statement . A small peninsula in itself, Sandbanks is well known for its exquisite views, high quality water and safe, shallow shelfing, making it a hub for those seeking the ultimate beach-side experience.

This beach s allure is not lost on those seeking an extra touch of luxury, with house prices in the area skyrocketing in recent years, Sandbanks is now regarded as highly fashionable and even dubbed Britain s Palm Beach by national media. When you re finished living the life of Riley, take a pleasant trip on the famous Chain Ferry across to, the aptly named, Shell Bay and fill your pockets with shiny seaside treasures on this (equally) brilliant stretch of beach. Sandford Hoiday Park 26 minutes drive.

Helter skelters, donkey rides and paddling in the sea, Punch and Judy, fish and chips all sound good to me! If you re looking for some good old fashioned, great British seaside fun then it s got to be Weymouth. Visit by night and enjoy Weymouth s enchanting Light Veils, these mighty columns stand 16m tall and project coloured laser beams from the promenade into the sea from sunset until midnight.

Their unique light patterns are said to be calming, we certainly find them fascinating! Warmwell Hoiday Park 15m, Sandford Hoiday Park 35 minutes drive. So, which of the UK s top beaches will you visit next?
