England’s best beach is in Cornwall, but other must-see spots in Devon and Dorset – full list | Beach vacation | Travel


Holidu, a holiday rental search engine, looked to Google reviews to find the best beach in England. Where was the first place?

Bossiney Cove in Cornwall has been crowned England’s best beach in the rankings.

A Holidu spokesperson said: ‘The best beach in England this year is Bossiney Cove in Cornwall.

“It’s a beautiful, secluded beach tucked away in a picturesque cove. This is the perfect beach for anyone who wants to spend some time swimming in the sea as it is home to a reef along the western edge of the sand providing a wonderful marine environment for snorkelling.”

Bossiney Cove is just a mile from Tintagel and is described as a ‘hidden gem’ by Visit Cornwall.

Woolacombe Beach in Devon was England’s second highest rated beach in the seaside rankings.

The award-winning beach is popular with families and surfers due to its exciting waves.

At five kilometers long, it is easy for vacationers to find a quiet place to relax even in high season.

The beach also has parking for 2,000 cars, meaning Brits could find a space even during busy times.

In third place in the English rankings was Cuckmere Haven in East Sussex. Sussex Beach is a very popular tourist destination.

It is next to the famous chalk cliffs, the Seven Sisters, which give it an atmospheric setting.

A visitor wrote on Tripadvisor: “A breathtaking place. Simply amazing!”

Another wrote: ‘Cuckmere Haven is English scenery at its best with a wide choice of walks or seats.
“The view of the coast is exquisite.”

Dorset had the most beaches in the top 10 with three beaches earning a spot in the rankings.

A Holidu spokesperson said: “If a UK staycation is planned for your holiday of choice this year, there’s a chance you’ll prefer somewhere that has the maximum chance of sunny weather.

“For that, your best bet is to head to the south coast of England. Cornwall and Devon are popular choices year after year.

“Bossiney Cove in Cornwall and Woolacombe Beach in Devon are two of the top rated beaches in the area.”
