Ms Rotterdam in the Norwegian fjords.
Portobello Beach, Edinburgh
You can't argue with a city that has a beautiful beach only 5km from its city centre and if you get up early enough, you can catch the legendary sunrise. As it's located in Scotland, temperatures can be a few degrees below the average (currently it has a high of 19C) but while it may not be the warmest spot to strip off and take to the water, it more than makes up for it in quaint Scottish charm and stunning scenery across the bay.

for the price of fuel you might as well head off towards France and Italy - that is if you can afford the ferry crossing / channel tunnel. They have it all worked out how to fleece us proper hardcore.
London ? yeah, go lie in the sun in London just make sure to bring a gasmask for the pollution and also keep an eye on your purse
Do the fountains of Trafalgar square, a concrete stream in Hyde Park, and Hampstead heath, constitute the best of britain.
No mention of the English Riviera South Hams, Dartmoor, Exmoor, Or Cornwall, North Devon, all of these locations have either lovely beaches,beautiful countryside, clean sparkling streams and rivers, much better than a man made concrete stream or fountain i think.
The editor of this article needs to get out more! As reported on the news last week, the best beach is between Bournemouth and Sandbanks in Lovely Dorset. The jurassic coast has most of the best coved beaches in the country along with Devon and Cornwall. Brighton? It's like sitting in a Gravel Pit.
Hi Christine, it is a waste of time reporting these lonely hearts adverts, MSN do absolutely nothing to vet them or remove them.
They are so annoying, and of late they seem to have got far far worse, every other post is one of these damn adverts for lonely hearts or get rich schemes.
Maybe if enough people complained something might be done, but i doubt it very much.
Why dont you buy a bike, rev it right up and F@#k off.
sorrry but if you want the beach and a little more warmth and a slower pace of life its got to be the channel islands, Further south than the rest of you guys so generally warmer and happier lol
