Beaches of the British Isles

This site aims to list every beach in the British Isles, allowing you to find beaches close to where you live or where you're staying on holiday, as well as get an idea of what the beach is like and what goes on there before you visit.

As well as beach listings, we also include weather and tide times where possible plus links to accomodation in the local area.

More will be added in the course of the next few days and weeks!

Redgate Torquay Devon

Spent many holidays in Torquay in the 1980s and early 1990s and Redgate was undoubtably the best beach in Torbay; a perfect sun-trap in the most beautiful surroundings. It is genuinely heartbreaking to see such a beautiful place locked away, especially if there has been no further rockfall for a [...]

Broadstairs - East Cliff Broadstairs Kent

Looking for a dog friendly beach and using the internet brought us here. Badly sign posted and once found no dogs allowed between 10-6. Surely they could be allowed at the edge of the cliff beach where it's not popular. We have travelled from Southampton and rely on the internet. The other problem [...]

Trebarwith Strand Tintagel Cornwall

Grew up here (on and off) and it's the best beach I have ever visited, including those in Portugal, Turkey and Africa. Brilliant bodyboarding and surfing here (boards and wetsuits available to hire) with fantastic waves on most days. On the calmer days it is possible to take a water craft [...]

Arnside Arnside Cumbria

We went today (28/7/14) thinking it would be a lovely place to let the children play in the sand as it seemed lovely on this website. What it neglected to say on the website is about the quicksands!! Very disappointed!

Bridlington - South Beach Bridlington East Riding of Yorkshire

Not impressed by the parking. Whatever you do DON'T try to park in the town use the park and ride. If we had known this in the first place wouldn't javelin wasted an hour but apart from that a lovely day

Kimmeridge Bay Kimmeridge Dorset

One of our favourite places in Dorset. Ignore the other, poor, reviews - they clearly have no idea what their talking about. Also the water quality is very good, you get crystal clear waters over interesting reefs with hundreds of fish, crabs and lobsters. Great for snorkelling. Fossil hunting is [...]

Seaham Beach Seaham Durham

Good beach better at low to mid tide else can be forced on to pebble area. Small rock pools nice for younger kids to explore. Quiet even on sunny weekends. Dog owners need to be a little more considerate to other beach users, but overall a good simple place for [...]

Crimdon - South Hartlepool Durham

Visited this beach this afternoon and what a huge disappointment for Hartlepool. The council should be ashamed of themselves for letting a beach become this dirty and covered in garbage. Every inch of the beach is strewn with plastic, glass, paper, tin. We walked down to the sea and right [...]

Mariners Road. Crosby Bootle Sefton

This is a wonderful stretch of beach at any time of the year. The Anthony Gormley Iron Men are fabulous, the way they have blended in, some covered in barnacles and up to their knees in sand others standing out of the sand on their pillars due to the nature [...]

Tankerton Beach Whitstable Kent

Loved Dymchurch beach. Unfortunately we were aiming for Tankerton in a completely different part of Kent. The link on this page is incorrect and has not been rectified despite the previous two comments. Please redirect to correct beach.
