Em­ble­ton Bay

Countryfile Magazine - - Annual Awards -

Northum­ber­land’s coast gar­ners an­other en­dorse­ment with this win. Stretch­ing for miles, this enor­mous sandy sil­ver beach is dom­i­nated by the epic ru­ins of 14th-cen­tury Dun­stan­burgh cas­tle on its south­ern tip.

Fringed by dunes, with am­ple bird­watch­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, the bay is per­fect for fam­ily out­ings or long walks.

Sec­ond place: Bale­phuil Bay

A beach to call one’s own… This re­mote par­adise on Tiree in the In­ner He­brides has miles of white sand and turquoise sea, and, thanks to its lo­ca­tion, a high like­li­hood of hav­ing it all to your­self.

Flanked by low dunes and machair habi­tat, the beau­ti­ful bay har­bours corn­crakes as well as free-roam­ing cat­tle and is a mecca for surfers.
