Build a towering town of sandcastles before the tide comes in. Test your skills in the neon-soaked arcade. Tuck into mouth-wateringly fresh fish ‘n’ chips with a front-row sea view. You could even visit UK Blue Flag beaches at Parkdean Resorts.

Along with some of the best beaches in the UK, our parks boast lots more to explore too. Look forward to fantastic on-site features such as restaurants serving up local produce, family-friendly entertainment and indoor swimming pools.
