We are of course not surprised by the wonderful news that our beloved Weymouth has been awarded the No.1 beach spot in the UK, beating the finest beaches in Newquay, Jersey and Scotland, to the top spot!
The recent TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards, which takes into account the views of millions of travellers, has really put the spotlight on the golden sandy beach of Weymouth and has shown that the rest of the world love it just as much as we do.
Weymouth really is the perfect sandy beach. The soft golden sands are perfect for building sandcastles and the way in which the beach gently shelves into the sea means that it is safe for a splash around to cool off in the summer. On top of this, there is always the good old fashioned beach entertainment in the form of traditional Punch and Judy shows, donkey rides and a fairground during the summer months, all to the backdrop of a beautiful Georgian Esplanade.
Weymouth’s ranking was based on the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings on TripAdvisor over the past 12 months. To achieve the number 1 spot in the UK is fantastic for Weymouth but the fact that it was also voted the 9th best beach in Europe is a great honour. TripAdvisor have commented that ‘The UK’s Weymouth Beach beating beaches in Sardinia, Greece and Spain this year, proves that the UK’s beaches can more than hold their own against destinations with sunnier climes.’
Many of the reviews of Weymouth beach were focussed on the stunning golden sands as well as the fact that the area is perfect for lovely dog walks. If you are looking to explore Weymouth as well as enjoying Weymouth beach why not take a look at our range of cottages in Weymouth?
