Magaluf is located in the southwest corner of Mallorca, seven kilometres from Calvià. Magaluf has many British visitors, but also many (young) tourists from Scandinavia.

Magaluf has a lovely 900 m long beach with the official name Platja de Magaluf. The beach has fine-grained sand and clear water.

During the summer, there are many young people at the beach in Magaluf, and naturally, this influences the beach life.

The beach has all facilities, including sun lounges, sunshades, toilet, showers and lifeguards. Behind the beach, there is a lovely new sea front, and here the young people gather in the afternoon.

Barceloneta Beach

With 100 miles of coastline stretching along the province, Barcelona is a beach lover’s dream come true. Bustling Barceloneta may be the most famous, but it’s hardly the end-all-be-all of beaches in Barcelona. From youthful, lively Nova Icària to tranquil Caldetes, there’s a beach in Barcelona for everyone.

When most people think of beaches in Barcelona, Barceloneta is probably the first that comes to mind. From drummers to sand-artists to singing donut salesmen, it may just be Barcelona’s dirtiest, most crowded, and most touristy stretch of sand. However, that just means it’s also the most entertaining.

Without a doubt, there’s always something going on at Barcelona’s most famous beach. Plus, it’s got some great seafood eateries along the shore in the eponymous Barceloneta neighborhood, a onetime fishermen’s quarter that retains its old-world charm. 


Marbella is one of Spain’s most popular destinations, its appeal is easy to understand. It’s also a beach lover’s paradise. There are a staggering 23 beaches along its 27kms of coastline. 

Marbella’s beaches have been awarded a total of six Blue Flags in 2015, one less than in 2014. The Puerto Deportivo Virgen del Carmen’s marina was also given a Blue Flag, bringing Marbella’s total to seven.

Playa de Alicate is one of Marbella’s most popular beaches. Long, sandy beaches and all the amenities you could hope for. Alicate beach is a popular choice for residents and holidaymakers alike. 

IBIZA, Figueretas

Best Beaches, Ibiza never disappoints
Best Beaches, Ibiza never disappoints

The beach of Figueretas is a well-made, centrally-located beach, divided into smaller parts by rocky piers, creating great areas for children to play in by day and convenient piers to fish from in the evening. The whole bay is bordered by a beautiful palm fringed promenade.

During the summer Figueretas beach is busy with holidaymakers and locals alike. Small ferries go to Ibiza Town and Playa den Bossa and there are a good many boat trips that go from here, including those that go to Formentera. In the evening the promenade comes alive with people strolling along, the setting up of small stands selling jewellery and souvenirs. You will also see many happy diners enjoying their dinner on outside terraces watching other people pass by.

This is the closest beach to Ibiza and there are good views of the old walled city of Dalt Vila from the southern end. And to the south the popular resort of Playa d’en Bossa is but a short walk away.


The Albufeira Coastline stretches along 30 km and is divided into roughly 25 different and beautiful beaches.

Their fine sand is gently touched by the crystal clear and warm ocean water that captivates bathers from all over the World.

Albufeira shoreline is gifted with magnificent beaches of diverse morphologies. Since imposing cliffs that dominate an extended swath of golden sand between Vilamoura and Olhos d’Agua, until shores bounded by dunes and lagoon at Salgados, passing by beaches surrounded by jagged cliffs of different sizes east and west, and not forgetting the most famous beaches near the urban areas which are no less pleasant and clean.

There’s nothing quite like a day at the seaside, and Blackpool is one of the best beach resorts you will find in the UK. It was even recently awarded its first ever Blue Flag, putting it on par with other world renowned sites including the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific coastline.

The whole family will love relaxing in the sun, taking a dip in the sea and enjoying an ice cream along the promenade here in Blackpool. There is plenty of space for sandcastles, sunbathing and family games, so you really can make a day of it.

Of course, Blackpool is also the only British beach resort to boast three fabulous piers, so don’t forget to pay these a visit as part of your day at the beach.

Love Beach Life… the best beaches could well be here in Bournemouth. Seven miles of award-winning beaches in fact!

Every section of Bournemouth’s beach offers a different experience, so why not try out one of many superb water sports or enjoy plenty of family attractions at Pier Approach? There is a bit of the beach with your name on it!

Bournemouth’s stunning coastline is full of action all year round as it hosts fantastic events and festivals. In August, it’s the annual Bournemouth Air Festival – the biggest event of its kind in the world. Offering four days of fantastic flying displays, evening entertainment, shopping and much more – this FREE event is perfect for all ages and tastes. In October Bournemouth lights up with the Arts by the Sea Festival, with ten days of events, installations and experiences for everyone to enjoy.


Of course a day at the beach has to include a trip to the iconic Brighton Palace Pier with its helter skelter and arcade games. Just next door you’ll find Sea Life Brighton home to giant turtles, sharks and seahorses. To the east of the Pier you’ll find the historic Volks Railway – Britain’s oldest electric railway built in 1883.

Brighton Beach

Head west and you’ll find the free Fishing Museum, tracing the city’s origins as a sleepy fishing village and a bit further along you’ll find British Airways i360 – the world’s tallest moving observation tower. Glide 450 feet into the air to see Brighton & Hove including the vibrant Brighton Beach, in all its glory! 

Heading west from the i360 takes you past the Peace Staute and across the boundary in to Hove. There’s the stunning architecture of the modernist Embassy Court and the Regency Brunswick Square. Further along the seafront there’s the iconic colourful beach huts and the new Hove Plinth. Major works will be showcased on the plinth for up to 18 months – the current one is Constellation by Jonathan Wright.

After dark, Brighton Beach really comes alive with Brighton’s seafront clubs and bars nestling underneath the Victorian beachfront arches opening their doors for some of the best club nights in the country.
