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.

Yet Again I have heard that Instow Parish Council are trying to ban dogs on the Beach nearest to the shop and Coffee Hut. I do wish these people would mind their own business. This is a lovely beach to walk our dogs. We would just like to be able to [...]

Newport Sands - North Newport Pembrokeshire

Very dog friendly beach. We have a very old dog and the car park is very close to the beach with a ramp down to firm sand which is also easier for a dog with bad hips. For the younger dog, the beach is quite long and extensive at low [...]

Aberdaron Beach Pwllheli Gwynedd

I am a frequent visitor to most of the beaches on the Llyn and have rarely been disappointed. One thing though, and this applies to all, would it be possible to add the Moon's phases as this would enable visitors to know whether the tides are going to be higher, lower [...]

I heard a rumour that Instow Parish council are now trying to ban dogs on part of the beach, this would be a shame to punish all dogs just for the poor control of a few owners!

Redgate Torquay Devon

Goodrington Sands Torbay Devon

The beach of my childhood. We came here for the first week in July for about 15 consecutive years in the mid 70s to late 80s. Seemed huge from my childhood memories, doesn't seem quite so big now I've been back a few times in my forties. But there's something [...]

Redgate Torquay Devon

I grew up working on the boats at red gate beach. My mothers partner Mike owned the boats and cafe there for many years during the 80's. One of the highlights of my life was being the deckie on the motor launch 'Nomad' with skipper Chris Walters (a true Devonian) [...]

Kimmeridge Bay Kimmeridge Dorset

An open area of rugged seaside which is good for rockpools and viewing the cliffs. The £5.00 per car access fee is a huge rip off unwarranted by the fact is that all it enables is vehicle access to get down to part of our coastline. The landlord [...]
