Secret Beaches – where to go for a quiet getaway
The biggest concern for most of us is how busy beaches will be – we’ve all seen the pictures of overcrowding in popular spots like Brighton and Bournemouth and how this could lead to virus spikes, but not all the seasides in the UK are as packed as the usual tourist hotspots.
Here are 5 secret beaches that are perfect for some peace, quiet and romance:
Coves Haven in Holy Island, Northumberland
A sandy, sheltered beach set against high dunes giving you uninterrupted privacy.
Drigg in the Lake District
On the edge of Cumbria, Drigg is a haven of golden sand dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see
Strathy Bay in the Scottish Highlands
Dramatic views of caves and rocky stacks in one of the most remote parts of the UK.
Shepherd’s Chine on the Isle of Wight
If you’ve not been to a chine, you need to add one to your travel bucketlist. They are dramatic coastal gorges creating a unique backdrop for your holiday photos.
Traeth Bychan Beach in Anglesey
A quiet beach mainly used by the local sailing club rather than holiday makers, it’s a place where you can simply relax and enjoy the calming sea breeze.
Wherever you’re going to make the most of the heatwave we wish you happy holidays. Stay safe and don’t forget to wear a mask!
