Seasides in England

Pebbles, sand, shopping or rides what is your ideal seaside? I love a good sandy beach with local fish and chips. I also like a pebble beach where I can bring a BBQ. Do you like somewhere quiet with limited shops or somewhere big with loads to do? Let me know if you have been to any of these beaches and please recommend more in the comments.

Walberswick Beach Suffolk

We found this beach when we was walking around the Walberswick area after crabbing. The waves were quiet strong and it was a bit windy that day but nevertheless a nice quiet place to relax after crabbing on the lake.

Whitstable Beach Canterbury

We spent the day up here visiting a friend and had a BBQ. The thing about most pebble beaches is you can have a BBQ which is nice if you don’t want to have the traditional fish and chips. The day we visited it was so quiet we had the whole bay to ourselves.

Hastings East Sussex

Another pebble beach which we enjoyed a BBQ at. The weather was beautiful the day we visited, the water was clean and the beach was well kept. Free parking available nearby.

Blackpool Beach Blackpool

We visited in October so not the ideal time to visit a beach. However look at that beautiful sunset! Blackpool has plenty attractions locally so I would advice staying a few days. Along the promenade there is plenty to eat. Blackpool Pleasure Beach is a great attraction for children of all ages. Blackpool Tower has a range of attractions I would definitely recommend going to the eye, that is if your not afraid of heights. We visited to see the Illuminations which was a brilliant experience.

Southwold Beach Suffolk

A sandy beach with lots of little bays. Although for a busy day I could imagine it getting overcrowded as the beach is not that long. Food shops local. Pubs and rides along the pier.

Clacton on Sea Essex 

A nice sandy beach with different areas which allow dogs and areas where dogs are not permitted. Toilets are clean and close. If driving here from London you will need to pay a Dart Charge each way.

Great Yarmouth Beach Norfolk 

Great Yarmouth has plenty to do. Donkey rides along the beach. They have designated areas with inflatables which for a small charge children can play for 10 minutes. Crazy Golf and swimming all along the promenade. Plenty choice of food to eat and arcades. You can easily spend a few days up here.

Botany Bay Beach Kent

All the beaches along this coast are beautiful and pretty with the cliffs. There are no local shops but it is a nice relaxing sandy beach. There is a rock pool which was enjoyed by all the children.

A beautiful sandy beach with trampolines, bouncy castles and swing boats. Plenty of food places locally. We brought our fish and chips and ate it on the beach. The views are amazing.

Bournemouth Beach Bournemouth 

A long sandy beach with piers and rides. There is a indoor waterpark called Splash down which is really good for children of all ages if you visit for a few days. There is also a large shopping area for those who like to shop.

Dymchurch Beach Kent

A sandy beach where there is also pony rides. Clean sand and water. Arcades and lots of places to eat. We stayed in Parks New Beach caravan resort. The beach is not walking distance from this accommodation. There is so much beaches along the Kent coast so it is a good idea to go with a car.

Sandgate Beach Kent

We didn’t actually visit this pebble beach but as we was driving from Folkestone back to Dymchurch we saw it on the way. Parking is on the main road opposite it. I don’t remember seeing places to eat or shop.

Folkestone Beach Kent

All the beaches along this coast are beautiful especially on a hot day, we visited during the hottest weekend in summer which was a bonus. There are food stalls along the way so you can try food from different cultures. This beach is famous for its mermaid sculpture.

Cambersands Beach Rye

I have visited Cambersands a few times when I’ve stayed at Pontins and its always been windy. Either way its a nice beach. This day we went it was the hottest day of summer, so that was perfect. Cambersands is right next to Pointins, you can get easy access.
