Britains top 10 beaches -Where is your favourite beach in the Uk, and why is it your favourite?
With trip advisor releasing their top 10 British Beaches this week it really got me thinking where is my all time favourite beach.
The Trip Advisor's top ten where as follows
1 – Bournemouth, Dorset
2 – St Brelade, Jersey
3 – Woolacombe, Devon
4 – St Ives, Cornwall
5 – Tenby, Pembrokeshire
6 – Newquay, Cornwall
7 – Bude, Cornwall
8 – Weymouth, Dorset
9 – Swanage, Dorset
10 – Padstow, Cornwall
It's really great seeing lots from Cornwall and Devon appearing in the top ten, however i feel beaches that would definitely feature in my top ten would be, Watergate Bay - because this is my local break and is where i spent a lot of time with friends and watching the sun go down and following it by a beer in the Pheonix. Perranporth, I surfed a lot here when i first moved to Cornwall and one of the most memorable sessions was when i got to surf with Dolphins. Daymer Bay holds a Christmas day family tradition with a walk on the beach to burn off all the mince pies so is another firm favourite. I really can't leave this one out of my favourite beaches and that is to agree with the trip advisor number 3 and that's Woolacombe Bay, as a beach i've grown up near with plenty of summer holiday visits when a child this beach will always feel special to me.
