Beaches of the British Isles
This site aims to list every beach in the British Isles, allowing you to find beaches close to where you live or where you're staying on holiday, as well as get an idea of what the beach is like and what goes on there before you visit.
As well as beach listings, we also include weather and tide times where possible plus links to accomodation in the local area.
More will be added in the course of the next few days and weeks!

Could i make it clear Abergele and Towyn beaches are not just shingle beaches. The shingle is only on the upper reaches of these beaches and when the tide goes out there is a wide expanse of sand. It is not just shingle!!

A popular sandy beach though storms can leave it short of sand at high tide when it is covered with pebbles and shingle (2014). The beach has rocks at each side giving opportunities for "rock pooling". Surfing is possible when conditions are right. Small craft can be beach launched when [...]

Spent many holidays in Torquay in the 1980s and early 1990s and Redgate was undoubtably the best beach in Torbay; a perfect sun-trap in the most beautiful surroundings. It is genuinely heartbreaking to see such a beautiful place locked away, especially if there has been no further rockfall for a [...]

Looking for a dog friendly beach and using the internet brought us here. Badly sign posted and once found no dogs allowed between 10-6. Surely they could be allowed at the edge of the cliff beach where it's not popular. We have travelled from Southampton and rely on the internet. The other problem [...]

Grew up here (on and off) and it's the best beach I have ever visited, including those in Portugal, Turkey and Africa. Brilliant bodyboarding and surfing here (boards and wetsuits available to hire) with fantastic waves on most days. On the calmer days it is possible to take a water craft [...]

We went today (28/7/14) thinking it would be a lovely place to let the children play in the sand as it seemed lovely on this website. What it neglected to say on the website is about the quicksands!! Very disappointed!

Not impressed by the parking. Whatever you do DON'T try to park in the town use the park and ride. If we had known this in the first place wouldn't javelin wasted an hour but apart from that a lovely day

One of our favourite places in Dorset. Ignore the other, poor, reviews - they clearly have no idea what their talking about. Also the water quality is very good, you get crystal clear waters over interesting reefs with hundreds of fish, crabs and lobsters. Great for snorkelling. Fossil hunting is [...]

Good beach better at low to mid tide else can be forced on to pebble area. Small rock pools nice for younger kids to explore. Quiet even on sunny weekends. Dog owners need to be a little more considerate to other beach users, but overall a good simple place for [...]

Visited this beach this afternoon and what a huge disappointment for Hartlepool. The council should be ashamed of themselves for letting a beach become this dirty and covered in garbage. Every inch of the beach is strewn with plastic, glass, paper, tin. We walked down to the sea and right [...]
