Cornwall has more destinations in the list than any other county, with St. Ives, Newquay, Bude and Padstow respectively named the UK’s 4th, 6th, 7th and 10th best beach destinations. Dorset’s Bournemouth took the top spot and was additionally the only UK beach to be included in the European list.
Malcolm Bell, Head of Tourism, VisitCornwall, commented: “Cornwall is an iconic destination where our fantastic beaches are one, if not the major draw, be that to swim, surf, walk on or dine beside. Any visitor will be spoilt for choice with over 300 beaches to visit which would take many years of visits and a lifetime of memories. This latest recognition shows we have real award winning beaches that can stand proud on an international stage.”
Award winners were determined based on the most highly rated beach destinations by travellers in TripAdvisor reviews. Unlike any other honours, TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travellers around the world.
“These awards recognise the UK’s best beach destinations, according to those that really matter – travellers themselves,” commented Emma Shaw, TripAdvisor spokesperson. “The UK is home to many miles of gorgeous coastline and Cornwall’s extensive inclusion in this list proves just how much visitors love the county’s beach destinations.”
