What are some of the most beautiful ones you can visit?
Bournemouth beach- With over 11 miles of glorious sand, there is plenty of space for the whole family to relax and swim here. Not only does Bournemouth have a great beach, but the city has also built up its entertainment industry to cater for tourists, therefore you will be able to find an array of delicious restaurants, cinemas, and theatres to keep you busy when you aren’t soaking up the sun! There are great transport links to the beach and it is easily accessible by train from anywhere in the UK.
Fistral beach– Renowned across the country as one of the top surfing and water sports destinations, any adventure junky would love this beach. Although popular year-round, we recommend taking a trip in the summer months when it is at its most busy and vibrant. So, if you have always fancied giving surfing a go – what’s stopping you?
St Brelade’s Bay – A family favourite, and one of the most scenic in the country, with plenty of safe swimming spots and sand castle building areas. Being south facing, it gets sun all day and is the perfect spot to relax and watch the world go by with friends or family.
What are some interesting landmarks on the South coast?
There are some iconic landmarks and places to visit on the south coast of England. Why not plan a visit to the Jurassic coast, which is a World Heritage Site, with spectacular geology and scenic views. The shorelines span from Dorset to East Devon, with many castles and covers to explore along the way. Why not plan a trip to Ramsgate, and pick out your favourite yacht in the harbour! Famous for fishing and shipbuilding, have a walk around Maritime Museum to learn even more about their rich culture. A must-see in Ramsgate is the Ramsgate Tunnels, in which 300 families hid and sheltered throughout the war – the largest civilian shelter in the country.
