Best UK Beaches ?

With another rainy dark winters day here in Cornwall – its time to look forward to the summer and visiting the beach.  I have read with amusement that trip advisor has released a list of the best beaches to visit in the country.  As wonderful as it is to see such beautiful beaches promoted, especially the four beaches here in Cornwall.  Of the 779 beaches which surround our Island is does make me wonder about how the 10 beaches come top of lists like this.

Looking through the list it quickly become apparent that all the beaches are in high use during the summer months.  Notably absent are beaches from the more remote coastlines of Scotland, Northern Island, Wales and most of the Channel Islands.  So it seems that the top 10 is comprised due to the shear number of visitors which go and sit on these beaches and then go and vote for them on trip advisor

I certainly know that trip advisor’s idea of a best beach would not be mine.   As lovely as these beaches are there are much better hide away and secret coves to be discovered out there.  Cornwall alone has about 300 beaches so this year when visiting please don’t follow the crowd and try somewhere new.

If you do want to check out the top 10 here’s the link
