With Miles of Stunning Natural Coastline, Escape to One of Britain’s Best Secret Beaches on Your Next Holiday
One of Britain’s main attractions is its long, stunning coastline and while certain beaches remain popular year after year, others are still dying to be discovered. So if you fancy getting away from it all, take a stroll down to one of Britain’s secret beaches to spend the day relaxing in the natural beauty of the British coastline.
The Lizard and Kynance Cove
The Lizard peninsula is best known as the most southerly place in the British Isles and if anything makes it worth the trip, it’s Kynance Cove. Visitors frequently describe this cove as one of the most breathtakingly beautiful sights in Britain and not without good reason. Follow the path from Lizard Village to Kynance Cove and stand on top of the cliffs for a spectacular view of its rock formations, or venture down to the beach at low tide to soak in the sights of the clear blue sea.
Barafundle Bay, Pembrokeshire
It’s no secret that Barafundle Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, but as an isolated part of the Welsh coastline, you’re unlikely to have to share it with many other tourists. Backed by sand dunes and crystal clear waters, this small bay is only accessible by a cliff path walk; giving you a great excuse to explore the stunning Welsh coastline on foot.
Just a ten-minute drive from Land’s End lies Porthcurno Beach – one of Britain’s most southerly hidden beaches and undoubtedly one of its best. Tucked between two sets of cliffs, this beach’s fine white sand is bordered by the Celtic Sea which turns turquoise in the sun in true picture postcard style.
This beach is popular with families in the summer and has a stream at the top which is ideal for children to paddle in. A lifeguard service is present in the summer months and a seasonal dog ban takes place between Easter Day and 1st October.
Bamburgh Beach lies within the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is overlooked by the historic Bamburgh Castle. While this beach is popular with holidaymakers, Northumberland remains one of the least densely populated counties of England and one of the best places in Britain to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. Taking a dip in the North Sea is optional but a leisurely stroll along this beach at sunset is an absolute must.
