As the UK experiences some of the hottest days it has ever seen we have been finding out where people regard as some of the UK’s best beaches for families.
We have lots of personal favourites at Mini Travellers, including our local beach West Kirby Beach, but here are a round up of some others.
St Martins, Isles of Scilly
Saundersfoot for wide, flat and a Blue Flag Beach is a favourite for Ickle Pickle. Perfect for families with Parasol and deckchair hire. Ice cream, drinks and food sellers. Easy, flat walk through the old mining tunnels to Coppet Hall beach, and Wiseman’s Bridge. Head for the quieter Back beach and Glen Beach behind the harbour for some great rock pools.
Swansea Bay is home to some stunning beaches. Rhossili Beach, the pinnacle of them (according to Laura from Adventures of a Mum) , sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and it’s easy to see why visitors flock from around the UK and beyond to enjoy it. Take a walk down the steep, winding cliff top down to beautiful Rhossili beach, wonder along the sweeping soft sand and you may even spot some seals or dolphins playing in the sea! The car park is free to National Trust members and a small charge without. Head left from the car park and you will reach Worm’s Head, with stunning views across the golden sand and the chance to walk across to the islands if the tide is right. Perfect for families, water sports and dog walkers alike, it’s no wonder Rhossili Bay has been voted Wales’ best beach.
Suzy from Our Bucket List Lives loves Anderby Creek in Lincolnshire. The tide is always out on the Lincolnshire coast so you are always guaranteed a lovely and safe stretch of sandy beach. It’s a beautiful and quiet beach as it doesn’t have all the trappings of a tourist beach. We love sitting in between the dunes with a picnic, collecting shells in our buckets and exploring the installations along the beach.
