Great ideas for a seaside holiday

Beach in Devon

Relax on the beach

Why do we go to the beach, if not to stretch out and enjoy the sunshine? Pack your bucket and spade and head out for an afternoon of total relaxation.

Penzance west cornwall

Take a dip in the sea

Look out for safe beaches to swim and paddle to make sure you can cool off on those particularly hot days. Remember to pack a waterproof sun-cream!

Rockpooling

Go rockpooling

There's nothing more fascinating for kids than discovering the miniature eco-systems of Britain. Take a fishing net and an identification book for a day of learning and fun that everyone can enjoy

Discover some maritime history

The coastal towns and cities make for a fantastic day out - look out for local museums and Martello towers, and explore the old port and harbour walls across much of the UK.

The Seven Sisters in afternoon light

Explore the countryside

Some of our most scenic countryside is along our coastlines - just take a look at the Seven Sisters in Sussex, or the Gower Peninsula.
