Bedruthan Steps beach by andybullock77

Bedruthan Steps Beach, north Cornwall

No lifeguards, but dogs are allowed all year. It's unusual, beautiful and only available at low tide . Plus there are lots of steps up to the National Trust car park, but we don't mind...

Out and out winner as far as our reviews are concerned! 

Porthcurno beach

Porthcurno, practically Land's End, Cornwall

Well, anyone could've guessed! But this came top in our reviews for its pure beauty - stunning is an oft-overused word but it really does sum this place up.
