Day trip, long weekend or beach holiday – we all love a trip to the coast. The British Isles are fringed by over 9,000 miles of coastline ready to be explored and we’ve got it all – from Dorset’s beautiful Jurassic coast and Cornwall’s surfing beaches, to cosmopolitan seaside cities such as Brighton and giant playgrounds such as Blackpool. The trick is knowing which is the best beach for you and your family or friends. Don’t want to travel too far for a single day? Want to take the dog along with you? Or how about a secluded cove where you’ll only have seagulls for company? In this tutorial I help readers find the best beach for then, using a selection of brilliant websites.
