    Anglesey beaches (North Wales). To name a few: Newborough (also has an awesome forest there), Aberffraw, Cable Bay, Benllech, Red Wharf Bay, Trearddur Bay and Dulas Bay. You've also got Snowdonia 20 minutes away as well. Will you have a car? If you have car then I would recommend that you actually stay in Bangor. Bangor is a bit of a dive but it's a lot cheaper than Anglesey (and Snowdonia) in the summer.
    If you're going to camp, then I know that Blackthorn Farm campsite at Trearddur Bay is really good.

    Newborough beach is lovely and romantic (not too touristy) I used to go camping there with the X. Treaddur is a bit more ahhh developed. She liked it cos she went there as a kid... I thought there were too many screaming kids and chavs on jetskis there tbh.

    South Shields in the North-East of UK (nr Newcastle/Sunderland) has some of the best coastline in the North-East....in my opinion certainly.

    Generally would should avoid the East coast and anything which is part of the North Sea. Such horrible murky water.

    Go for the west coast, where the sea is much nicer.

    What is a beach without the sea?

    It isn't pebbles you should be worrying about, it is sewage.

      Most beaches with pebbles are in Torbay, Devon apart from Torre Abbey, Goodrington and some others.
      So thats somewhere to avoid. Those the beaches here are clean

      Rhyl has a lovely beach. Plus, once your done frolicking in the sand, you can buy some dirty Welsh heroine in a back alley, shoot up and go ape in the penny arcades!

      As everyone has already said, Newquay is great, but Whitby would also be a great choice (even if only for the fish & chips!).
