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!

Fishing off of Mousehole harbour is great fun, lots of Pollack and Wrasse, best taken on a sliding float rig with rag worm as bait. Start fishing when its about 8 foot deep and fish right through to a couple of hours after high tide.

Winchelsea and Pett Level are bird watchers' heaven; take a camera with you for some stunning shots along the low tide lines and stop at the pub or cafe for a good value lunch. An unspoilt and tranquil place.

Is this beach really suitable for swimming in the sea? Is the water clean enough?

Further to my recent comments I would add that a walk to the very southern tip of Walney Island will give you a wonderful view of the castle ruins on Piel Island. When the tide is out you can actually walk across to it, but a word of warning: [...]
