Sandcastles, ice creams, swimming and surfing
Britain is flanked by miles of sandy beaches and beautiful bays. You’ll find everything from old-fashioned seaside towns to modern water sports havens.
There is no need to leave the UK, the whole family will love it and the kids will love hunting around in the rock pools, splashing in the water, and trying out some new water sports.
If your inner Beach Boy is keen to discover what surfing is all about there is no better place to find out than Croyde Bay.
Powerful waves and excellent surf schools and surf shops have helped establish Croyde Bay’s reputation as North Devon’s best beach for catching waves.
Despite armies of young surfers keen to party, the village still boasts an olde worlde charm. If you’re not interested in surfing, there is plenty of room for sunbathers, swimmers and beach cricketers.
The Queen of North Wales resorts…the Naples of the North…however we call it, Llandudno.
An afternoon on Llandudno’s North Shore is a chance to enjoy the seaside as it should be, complete with a Victorian pier and a long promenade. You won’t be on your own, of course – this is the most popular beach in the area.
The sandy West Shore has a play area on the seafront, impressive views of Anglesey and the mountains, the sea cliffs of the Great Orme and some incredible sunsets over the water.
