H ere at Great Little Breaks, we love what the UK has to offer. Whether its walks, exciting attractions, historic monuments, or popular cities, we want to highlight the 'Best of Britain'! For the next few days will be sharing with you what we think is the best of Britain.

In typical British style, many British beaches receive visitors from all over the country throughout the year, and it's no wonder when you look at what they have to offer. From the beautiful white sands of Woolacombe, to the shores of Blackpool, all beaches are there to be enjoyed!

Bournemouth Central Beaches

Buckets and spades at the ready! Welcome to seven miles of award-winning beaches with some of the warmest sea temperatures in the UK. Whether you stroll along the pier or set up camp on a deck chair you can enjoy magnificent sea views for miles. If the suns out why not hire a beach hut for the day and take full advantage of being beside the seaside.

Sandown, Isle of Wight

Renowned for being one of the Isle of Wight's finest beaches, this award-winning stretch offers miles of golden sands and the popular pleasure pier. Popular with surfers, families and couples alike, this beautiful beach is surrounded by charming seaside cafes, a range of delightful amusements and plenty of space for you to set up camp for the day.

Woolacombe Beach, Devon

Voted as one of Britain's best beaches, Woolacombe definitely makes it onto our list. Known as a favourite for families, couples, surfers, and sunbathers alike, this North Devon beach attracts thousands of people each year and with 3 miles of beautiful sandy shores, it's no wonder!
