Beautiful views and more space than people, new research says these are the best beaches in the UK for social distancing.
We must of course continue to stick to social distancing rules while out and about (you can find the government’s full list here). And we should all act safely and responsibly (stay two-metres apart from people, regularly wash and sanitise hands, wear a face mask).
But, we can now spend time outside as much as we please and meet up as a group of six.
As the images of areas like Brighton have shown over the last couple of weeks, some beaches are already far too busy and unsafe, which is why UKcaravans4hire.com has been doing some research into quieter beaches in the UK.
In order to find the UK’s quietest beaches, researchers analysed Google to determine which seaside spots are being searched the least.
For example, Priory beach in Pembrokeshire has received only nine searches per week on average, while Blackpool beach is nearing 3,500 searches.
Below, we’ve listed four of the quietest beaches in the UK, so that we can enjoy the sunshine without putting added pressure on the UK’s seaside hotspots. Just be sure to respect local residents by sticking to social distancing rules.
