The UK's most Instagrammable beaches

By FreshSocial 07 May 2018

If you're not jetting off this summer, don't sit around feeling sorry for yourself...

You're lucky enough to be in the UK and we have plenty of amazing beaches!

Whether you just want to soak up the sun or would prefer a hiking adventure, we know the places where you'll get the best pictures to post all over Instagram to make your mates jealous:

Brighton Beach
You won't be able to build a sandcastle but you will be able to sit on a deck chair on the pebbled beach and take in the rays. In the summer months, there will be plenty going on and it'll be pretty busy. Brighton is in the top 10 city breaks in the world so go and see what all the fuss is about!

Towan Beach, Newquay
Now, this sets the standards for all beaches in the UK! Newquay can be quite difficult to get to but is definitely worth a visit. Whether you lounge around in the sun, attempt some surfing or just go for the occasional swim, you're guaranteed to get some amazing pictures to post all over your Instagram feed and story.

Weymouth Beach
Have you been to Dorset before? If not, now is the time to go and explore because it's got this little gem. It's the perfect beach to walk along with some fish and chips to really get in British summer spirit! This is a great place to take a dog if you have one in the family or sign up to BorrowMyDoggy.

Bournemouth Beach
The weather is usually great down here so you can't really get it wrong unless we get any more unannounced snow! Ask a few friends to join you so that you can play a game of volleyball or tennis in the sun. One thing that gives Bournemouth an extra quirk (and a perfect photo opportunity) is the colourful huts that run alongside the beach - very cute.

If you'd prefer a scenic beach that you'll find along a walking route, there are a couple of gems that we'd recommend. Time to pull out the walking boots!

Heddons Mouth
This is buried amongst the Heddon Valley National Trust site so after you've walked for quite a while, it's nice to rest by the water. It's a perfect place to go with a group to keep each other motivated and then you can have your lunch and chill before thinking about the walk back...

Walmer Beach
Kent is a great place to spend your summer because there's lots for you to do during your time there, one of them being Walmer Beach! It's easily one of the most photogenic beaches on the list and has a cycle path alongside it too - either way, you won't be bored and might get some exercise done too.

Wherever you choose to go, take in the sights and explore the city/town and make a holiday of it. The UK has more to offer than you realise!
