The great thing about the UK, is that we’re never that far from a stretch of sand or shingle, especially if you live in or around London.
Whether you fancy splashing around in the sea or strolling along the sand with ice cream, or rolling up your jeans for a paddle, the weather is perfect for a day at the beach.
A beautiful, miles-long wide sandy beach one of the longest dune systems on the south coast and with masses of space for walking or relaxing.
Another fave of mine is West Wittering, with it’s a long, narrow Sussex beach and often feels remote due to its vastness.
Another underrated beach, where crowds are rare is Botany Bay, located between Margate and Broadstairs, and offers visitors an undeveloped and relaxed beach experience.
Offering a far more relaxed beach experience, Shoreham Beach in West Sussex is perfect for picnics, walks and relaxing with family.
Located miles away from the coast, in Surrey, is a pond which you can swim in the calm pond waters, grab an ice cream and do some sunbathing.
