British beaches vie for #1 ranking


Trip Advisor's rankings of Britain's best beaches may set off a tempest in a teapot, with its ranking of Dorset's Weymouth Beach as the tops in the U.K.

Last month, TravelGumbo published a Picture of the Day featuring Bournemouth Beach, also in Dorset, often mentioned as the country's top beach.

With 10,000 miles of coastline, there are bound to be many favorite beaches; here's TripAdvisor's top ten. But, as they say, Your Mileage May Vary.

  1. Weymouth Beach, Weymouth, Dorset
  2. Fistral Beach, Newquay, Cornwall
  3. St. Brelade’s Bay Beach, St Brelade, Jersey
