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!

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 [...]

This is a wonderful stretch of beach at any time of the year. The Anthony Gormley Iron Men are fabulous, the way they have blended in, some covered in barnacles and up to their knees in sand others standing out of the sand on their pillars due to the nature [...]

Loved Dymchurch beach. Unfortunately we were aiming for Tankerton in a completely different part of Kent. The link on this page is incorrect and has not been rectified despite the previous two comments. Please redirect to correct beach.

Huge sandy beach, very nice and not many people on it, even on the very hot day we went on. Lovely!

We always enjoy our stays at Freshwater East and enjoy our time on this lovely beach. We discovered on the rocks at far end of the beach at low tide an inscription in the rocks which reads PENGY 1942 - m-> and a smiley face and further round the initals [...]

Been using this beach since the 1950s, shame the Boating lake is no longer there and the tea room/arcade. But West Beach Caravan site club house now is open to the public for Teas/Coffees and cream cakes etc. Parking is a bit tight so come early if you intend staying longer than 4 hours.

A lovely beach, thoroughly spoiled by the inability of Dog owners to read the No Dog sign. We could have collected £10,000 in dog fines, at least. One woman even let her dog foul under the warning notice. We were there in July on a special day out with my Daughter, [...]

The Kids & Adults will love exploring the rock pools. Shop & Toilet near by. Great walk through the old Tram Way Tunnel's in to Saundersfoot. Mid Summer you might get a glimps of a Seal catching his supper. Great day out for all. Oh, great place for catching Mackrel [...]

I first visited Three Cliff Bay in 1968. I was 11 years old and wow it was like a new world. Clear blue sea, all sandy beach. We were Camping and it was great. I've re:visited and "Wow" it's great. Three Cliff Bay will stay on my mind for always.
