In the UK often seaside holidays are thought to be for children or old people and there are some seaside resorts which are specifically aimed at these markets. However, there are many lovely coastal areas which are away from the tourist haunts and can offer a lovely secluded spot for a holiday. There are many great cliff walks along the British coast which can take you along to less popular beaches and there are some lovely coastal areas which are buzzing and have lots to do.
So whether you want something relaxing and quiet, or somewhere with lots to do and appealing to all generations, you should be able to find something along one part of the British coast. It is a huge area and a bit of Internet research will let you know what sort of places offer what type of atmosphere. There are many companies that rent out holiday cottages as well as many bed and breakfasts, camp sites and hotels so you should be able to find somewhere near tow here you want to stay. A more secluded beach is likely to have less accommodation nearby and you may need to use a car to reach it. However, it is likely to be cheaper to stay there than something which is very popular.
Think beforehand whether you would like to stay at a beach which has pebbles or sand or whether that actually makes a difference to you. It is important to think about what you want to get from your holiday well in advance so that you can make sure that what you are planning will fit in with your requirements. It should be easy to do this as long as you think, make a list and then follow through your requirements. It may take longer but it will guarantee that you get the type of holiday that you are looking for.
