Plenty more reasons to visit your beach

Today, 27 September 2018, is #WorldTourismDay and this coming weekened is also the last official weekend of the bathing water season for 2018. But don't dispair, there are still plenty of great reasons to visit and enjoy your local Blue Flag or Seaside Award-winning beach as the weather gets cooler.

Here's our top five favourite reasons to make the most of the shorter days and head to the beach this autumn or winter...

  1. Beaches are often quieter at this time of year, so its a great opportunity for a walk along the beach.

  2. Crisp, clear winter days can be a great chance to take photos. 

  3. Winter storms often wash up some interesting flotsam and jetsam onto the strandline. Take a closer look after a storm at the seaweeds, shells and other finds from the sea. Or why not take along a bin bag and litter picker / gloves and tidy up the litter from along the strandline.

  4. Seasonal dog exclusions may be lifted on your beach at this time of year (check the signs though as some are year round), so its a great chance for your dog to join you on the beach.

  5. And finally, many of the best reasons to visit the beach are year round - think health benefits, great views and fresh air.

Whatever your favourite reason to visit your local beach - make sure you get out and visit this autumn and winter.
