To help visitors find the beaches that best meet their needs, holidaycottages.co.uk created the beach index tool This tool allows users to search more than 550 beaches by county or name, and filter by various criteria including: the availability of parking, toilets, lifeguards, cafes, water quality, accessibility, water sports available and whether the beach is dog-friendly.
Commenting on the findings, Shannon Keary, PR & Communications Manager at holidaycottages.co.uk said, “Whether you live by the coast or have fond memories of holidays by the sea from your childhood, here in the UK we really value our time spent at the beach. Whilst we all have our own personal favourites, it was really interesting to dive into the facilities of each beach to find which ones have the most to offer, hopefully helping people to discover somewhere new for 2022.
“Being able to filter down to beaches with lifeguards, the highest water quality, the availability of water sports and other factors should really help people to make their decision on where best to enjoy their break by the sea!”
