Great Britain tends to come alive when the weather is good. Previously grey rainy towns take on a different personality when the sun has got his hat on. Cities have that Mediterranean feel, with al fresco dining and green spaces which are full with people enjoying themselves and lounging in the sunshine. Britain has some of the most fantastic beaches too, with great expanses of golden sands and clear blue sea, they really are worth a visit or holiday. Some of them recently have been awarded Blue Flag Status, which means the water is very clean, so great for swimming (ok they could be a wee bit nippy). So if you are ‘staycationing’ this year, or you fancy a weekend away with no airports involved, why not try a few of the best beaches that the UK has got to offer. There are plenty up and down the country, so you should find one local to you.
Some of our favourites are Aberdour Silver Sands in Fife, Whitley Bay in the North East, Scarborough North Bay in Yorkshire, Mablethorpe beach in Lincolnshire, Clacton on Sea & Martello Bay in Essex, West Wittering Beach in West Sussex, Sandbanks Peninsular in Dorset and Abersoch in Wales.
If you want to look postcard perfect then don’t forget to pack your Bravissimo swimsuit, you will look fabulous in the Wish You Were Here Swimsuit by Letters from Evie. It has that fifties look, which is very on trend this summer, featuring a halter neck but also can be worn strapless and it has hidden tummy control. You could accessorise with white jeans, a little cardi and pumps for later in afternoon. Check out more Blue Flag Beaches at http://www.blueflag.org/
