There is nothing better than spending your day on a sun-soaked beach, relaxing by the ocean’s edge or helping your kids to build their first sandcastle. So if you’re looking to put a beach at the heart of your holiday take a look at our favourite of Britain’s best beaches. Whether you’re looking for a secluded cove, heading to a popular hotspot or wanting to try out some water-sports, we’ve got the perfect beach for you.


Just a few short miles away from our Warmwell Holiday Park, Weymouth Beach is a 3-mile long stretch of sandy shores and a brilliant family-friendly seaside spot. As well as being a stunning stretch of beach, Weymouth is filled with traditional seaside activities - with Punch & Judy shows and Donkey rides, as well as summer-time fireworks displays and Volleyball tournaments.

Weymouth Beach in Dorset


Britain’s oldest seaside resort and as traditional as they come, with fish and chips, arcades and a gorgeous seafront. The North Bay beach-side in Scarborough is slightly more rugged than the South. There are rock-pools to explore when the tide goes out, while you can try your hand at a Jet Ski if you’re feeling adventurous! Our Cayton Bay Holiday Park sits just outside of Scarborough, offering easy access to the town and all its brilliant beaches.

Scarborough Beach


Sitting just south of the popular resort of Great Yarmouth and its busy beaches .If you’re looking for something a little calmer, this three mile stretch is sure to please. The dog friendly beach sits just a short trip away from our Cherry Tree and Breydon Water Holiday Parks. The perfect beach for those looking for more activities with tennis and basketball courts nearby and the best winds for surfing! 

Gorleston Beach sea front


Situated right next to our Crantock Beach Holiday Park, the expansive golden sands of Crantock beach in Newquay were voted the Best British Beach by the BBC in 2013. With cliff-side views, sand dunes and rocky crags flanking the shoreline you’ll marvel at the scenery. If you’re a keen surfer, this is the perfect spot to catch some waves, while there are plenty of schools if you’re looking to learn!

Nairn Beach in Northern Scotland is a sandy beach whose golden shores back up into a grassy green. The beach offers scenic views of Moray Firth and the Black Isles, while the coastline is inhabited by Dolphins – often spotted from the shoreline. Our Nairn Lochloy Holiday Park sits right next to the beach.
