The one-offs that make Edinburgh brilliant
1 Bournemouth, Dorset, England
Cornwall's beaches are considered some of the best in the land (and indeed, a number of them feature in this list), so it's a great coup that Bournemouth has knocked last year's winner, St Ives, off the top spot. Recent investment in the area of around £11 million has been key, says TripAdvisor's spokesperson Emma Shaw. The pier has been refurbished and brightly coloured beach huts line the shore. Tripadvisor user Barbara G describes it succinctly: "Miles of golden sand. Can walk by the sea for miles. Relaxing and peaceful."

No, actually, it should read the best beaches in the SOUTH of England. But hey don't knock it - let's us northerners keep our secret bits of paradise to ourselves.
Britain's best beaches,
Nice to see that the winner is the only one which doesn't show the beach...........
( unless its the opening picture which shows the huts)
It would have been nice to see why it had won.
Well done msn.
