    Spent most of my holidays as a kid on this beach. It's fab! But don't tell anyone, let's keep this to ourselves!
    Ah, I remember going there when I was 7 or 8, and there were lots of blackberry bushes next to where the sand started which had the biggest, sweetest and most delicious blackberries I'd ever tasted before in my life! My sisters and I picked tons of them that day. It's one of my favourite family holiday memories I remember how incredibly wide the beach was too, and how shallow the sea.

    Bare in mind in rainy weather beaches are all going to be vile, and even in sunny conditions, remember we're in the UK... any little ray of sunlight sees 50% of the population flock to the seaside...

    But enjoy

    Newborough beach, Anglesea (North Wales):

    The pictures don't really do it justice.
    I had to do a field trip there... it was tragic.

    if you're staying near a beach, try bigbury, they have a hotel on the island thats next to the beach, its such a nice place

    newquays lovely, but its pretty busy! you can try falmouth too

    bigbury : http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=big...t:429,r:16,s:0
    (the sandy bit in the middle gets covered in water at high tide, so you get the island)

    mothercombe:http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=mot...1t:429,r:5,s:0

    falmouth: http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=fal...1t:429,r:1,s:0

    just thought, bude! brilliant place, but its also very touristy: http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=bud...1t:429,r:0,s:0

    Woolacombe Bay. One of my favorite beaches to wave ski off.



    If you're not going for the surf then it is worth walking towards the far end of the beach as the town end gets pretty busy when its nice but the beach is so long that the far end stays quiet.

    The more popular beaches in the UK are in cornwall and devon and are usually golden sand and a bit better weather than oter beaches in the country. Newquay and St. Ives are popular towns for tourism as there are decent beaches and good nightlife. Generally I would go for north cornish coast beaches as there is much less seaweed and better surf

    Falmouth is on the southern coasts so some of the beaches can be a bit seaweedy but its a lovely town and has nice hotels within easy walking distance. Its good for rainy days as you can pay like £6 and use the hotels pool/spa facilities for the day. There are two uni campuses nearby which means falmouth has good nightlife too!

    Personally one of my favourite beaches is the Godrevy-Hayle beach. It runs for several miles of golden sand and there is usually plenty of space to be able to find a more quiet spot even during peak season. The only downside of staying on the north coast is that there is little nightlife. However, there are a few places in Penzance which is within a 15-20 minute drive away along the dual carriageway.
