Losgaintir Sands – in the Outer Hebrides voted the finest beach in the UK with an undeniably magnificient setting.  This walk head across the sands and then above the shoreline before returning through the village.  Unpassable at high tide!

Morar Beach – coastline Morar and Arisaig in Scotland – The Silver Sands of Morar are a celebrated series of beautiful sandy beaches which pepper the coastline from Arisaig to Morar. Most are easily accessible from the roadside but this walk visits one of the least frequented beaches, crossing some wet ground on the way.

Traigh a’Mhill – Fidden, Scotland is a picture-perfect destination that looks as though it belongs in the Caribbean.

Silecroft Beach – Cumbria – a peaceful, relaxed coastal beach and village overlooked by the 600 metres height of Black Combe from whose summit it is claimed that on a clear day Scotland, Wales the Isle of Man and 14 counties of England can be seen.  This beach has child friendly sand and pebble allowing plenty of space for other activities of angling, kiting, dog walking and horse riding.

Barafundle Bay – Stackpole, Pembroke – A crescent-shaped soft golden sand and crystal clear waters – a small bay backed by dunes and pine trees, accessible only a half mile walk from the nearest car park.  Voted many times as one of the best beaches in Britain and the world often likened to a Caribbean beach!!  A pristine, isolated beach with no facilities which means everything you take has to come back up over the cliffs.

Moor Sand – South Devon – is a small quiet pebble beach with rock pools.  No facilities or parking.  Park at Prawle Point and walk the coast path, which takes about 1 hour from Prawle Point but it’s worth doing for the stunning scenery.

Sandymouth Beach – Cornwall – is a large pebbled secluded beach below towering cliffs.  The beach is situated 3 miles north of Bude and thanks to the National Trust has been made more beach-801832_640

Kynance Cove is Located on the west side of the Lizard which is probably the most photographed and painted location in Cornwall, the contrast between the cove’s white sand beach and the dark red and green serpentine rock produces a breath-taking sight.  Even with a steep 10-15 minute walk down to the cove this doesn’t stop visitors  heading to the beach for a family day out, a romantic stroll along the sand or to photograph the moment when in the sunlight on the sea turns a brilliant turquoise colour.

Broadsands Beach – in between Paignton and Brixham on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.  Sandy beach with rock pools where the whole family can enjoy making sandcastles and paddle in the calm sea.
