Summer vacation - 2018: the top 10 beaches in the UK

Beach holiday is the most popular. Everyone finds something in it for himself. For some, the beauty of the surrounding nature is important, others appreciate solitude and tranquility, and for some, the main thing is that at nightfall the life pumps on the beach and there is a lot of entertainment. Britain is a country-island, therefore there was never a beach issue here. But which of the beaches are best is a separate conversation.

According to the latest polls conducted on the website of the famous travel company TripAdvisor, most travelers preferred Dorset and its 11-kilometer coastline along the southern coast. The most successful was the beach in Bournemouth. It also hit the top five in Europe and the 14th in the list of the best beaches in the world.

In the UK, three of the top ten beaches are located in Wales, and Rhossili Bay on the Gower Peninsula received the title of the best beach in Wales. Luskentyre on Isle of Harris in Scotland took second place. The pebbled beach of Brighton is also popular with travelers and took its fourth place.

Robert Francis-Davies, a member of the tourism office in Swansea, said: "Tourists have always loved Gauer, and now they voted for it online, and the whole world found out about the peninsula. It is surprising that such a relatively short coastline received two awards in 2018. Now thanks to the recognition, the beach will attract millions of travelers."

Hayley Coleman added: "From year to year, the beaches of the UK continue to crowd out many exotic beaches around the world, even in the absence of hot weather, our beach vacation remains one of the best."
