European Beach Guide

From Cornwall in South West England right up to the beautiful and remote coastlines of Scotland, the UK certainly offers its fair share of heavenly sandy beaches. Although the UK has enough beaches and seaside resorts to satisfy the most ardent beach lover, Europe does deliver when it comes to reliable beach weather; an essential ingredient following a long British winter. In fact European destinations like the Canary Islands, Cyprus and Turkey are winter havens boasting idyllic beach conditions well into November.


In summer the rest of southern and central Europe opens its arms to beach lovers seeking warm weather, vibrant culture and value for money, especially established players like Spain and Portugal where authentic and affordable beach resorts abound in great numbers. Here families, surfers and nature lovers enjoy beautiful coastlines whilst those looking for something a little more exclusive only need head for the trendy Balearics, the sun bleached Greek Islands, the chic Italian isles of Sicily and Sardinia or the South of France.

As far as accommodation goes, each of these locations boasts a huge selection of coastal holiday cottages to rent with some properties enjoying uninterrupted sea views and direct beach access. There are cottages with hot tubs, holiday homes that are dog friendly and of course most of the beach houses and seaside apartments are child friendly making them ideal for family holidays on the beach. You can choose from five star luxury beach cottages to cheap and cheerful studio apartments for couples, so there is no need to spend a fortune to find your ideal cottage by the sea.

United Kingdom

Spoilt for choice is how we would describe the wonderful beaches lining the shores of the UK. Whether it’s surfing, fishing, sailing or just taking the dog for a walk, the beaches in the British Isles cater for all comers from remote secluded bays to buzzing coastal resorts plus a sprinkling of upmarket beachside escapes. Being so well connected with cheap flights and a reliable highway system getting to your ideal UK beach has never been easier or more affordable and with so many seafront self-catering holiday homes to choose from, it's the perfect way to spend your next short break with family or friends.
