Britain’s most photogenic beaches

Britain’s most photogenic beaches

Britain’s coastline measures an incredible 11,073 miles (17,820 km) and boasts some of the most magnificent beaches in the world – there’s a reason millions of us visit them every year, from far and wide. Wherever you are in the country, you won’t be far from a glorious stretch of sand or a secret cove, and we’re on a quest to find the best. From Land’s End to John O’Groats, we’re looking for the most photo-worthy beach in Britain. It may be a popular holiday spot, or it could be a secret beach of the wild and unspoilt variety, where even at the height of summer you can find a secluded spot beneath the cliffs or among the dunes. There are so many to choose from!

A few of our absolute faves are below – but we want to know what yours are! Share your photos with us via Facebook and Instagram

5 top tips for taking great beach photos

1. Make it fun

Beaches evoke feelings of joy, happiness and freedom, so try to encapsulate some of those qualities in your photo. A sense of action, whether it’s your kids jumping from the dunes or waves crashing on the rocks, will bring your pictures to life.

4. Focus on the small things

Interesting shells or pebbles, seaweed, driftwood or a cute little crab can all create interest and atmosphere, and will make wonderful feature shots to break up your family holiday photo book.

5. Time it right

There are two reasons for timing your snaps for early morning or late in the day. Firstly, you get the best light when the sun is lower and nearer to the horizon. Secondly, the beaches are less crowded, so you’re less likely to have people walking in front of your camera or popping up behind your subjects.
