I seem to have made quite a few trips to the beach this year. The most recent excersion was to Huttoft in Lincolnshire. We used to come here a fair bit when I was a child and what I remembered most were the concrete ramps down to the beach. These have evidently been done away with and the beach is now level with the free car park, making it much easier to access. There was some mist rolling across the beach when we arrived but it soon brightened up and the sea was lovely and warm. Not too busy or overcrowded it’s still as lovely a place to visit now as when I was a child.

Llandudno’s West Shore beach is renowned for being quieter than the North Shore and we certainly found that to be true on our visit.
Llandudno is the largest seaside resort in Wales and its pier is also the longest at 2,295 feet.. The current pier, opened to the public on 1 August 1877 is Grade II listed, lined with shops, fairground rides and a café.
On one of our days in Wales we stopped off for a walk along the beach at Colwyn Bay. The beach, which stretches for over three miles was very clean and even though it was a sunny afternoon we still had the place mostly to ourselves.
Alnmouth is a village in Northumberland located at the mouth of the River Aln that was established in around 1152 and is notable for its lovely beach which we stopped off to explore after our visit to Alnwick Castle.
