Things to Do: Beaches
The beaches in South West England make family holidays special...
We're lucky to have some of England's most spectacular coastline here in the South West, along with many of the best beaches in the UK - in fact, we have more Blue Flag beaches than any other UK region.
The beaches featured on this site include 'cool' resorts totally geared up for surfing and water sports, as well as tiny sandy coves, just perfect for building sandcastles and paddling.
The search below is designed to help you find great beaches - whether you're looking for bodyboarding beaches in Cornwall, beaches in Devon with rock pools, sandy beaches in Dorset or beaches in Somerset with a blue flag award - and with every beach you'll find a selection of family friendly places to stay nearby.
