From quiet coastal retreats to the bright lights of the UK's top seaside cities, our seaside hostels promise fresh air, a friendly atmosphere and miles of coastline to explore and enjoy!

Great ideas for a seaside holiday

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.

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!

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.

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.
