Wales or Whitby?

Three al­ter­na­tive coastal des­ti­na­tions make life a beach

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

More rid­ing heaven from the Welsh moun­tains to the Whitby coast

Saint Ives, Corn­wall

Saint Ives, on Corn­wall’s north­ern tip, is bo­hemian-arty ( Tate Modern gallery), surf-cool (Porth­meor Beach), and boat-fish­ing busy (bustling har­bour). And we can ride there on the A39, the great, 170-mile At­lantic High­way run­ning across north Devon.

Ceannabeinne Beach, Dur­ness

Ride the best 500 miles in Bri­tain (see In­ver­ness to In­ver­ness), with a day in be­tween loung­ing on crys­tal white sands and swim­ming in pure azure seas. Scot­land’s north­ern edge is dot­ted with pic­ture­post­card beaches along the fa­mous North Coast 500 loop.

An­gle­sey Cir­cuit, An­gle­sey

An­gle­sey Cir­cuit has eye-pop­ping cliff-edge coastal views to sur­pass Aus­tralia’s Phillip Is­land. It’s tar­mac ge­nius. There’s no track­day sched­uled for this Bank Hol­i­day but there is su­per­moto rac­ing which is well worth watch­ing – it’s the perfect ex­cuse for a ride to north-west Wales. www. an­gle­s­ey­cir­cuit.com

Con­tin­ued over

Saint Ives has a bit of every­thing and doesn’t get rammed

An­gle­sey race track is a cracker... and the views aren’t bad ei­ther

Stun­ning, de­serted beaches lit­ter Scot­land’s north coast
