The best beaches in the UK have been revealed – and the first one might surprise.
Kynance Cove, a small beach in Cornwall, took the top spot, beating out Newquay’s popular Fistral Beach and Brighton Beach.
Research done by luxuryhotel.comanalyzed Instagram data and beach length to find the beaches with the highest “hashtags per meter”.
Kynance Cove, located in Mount’s Bay, Cornwall, comes in at number one with almost 55,000 hashtags, despite being only 200m long.
Brighton Beach, while it has over 900,000 hashtags, is one of the longest on the list, three miles long.
And Cornwall’s Fistral Beach also makes the top three, which is famous for its annual Baordmasters festival.
While Cornwall makes up three of the top 10, other parts of the UK are not excluded.
Other beaches that made the top 10 include Durdle Door in Dorset and Scarborough Beach in North Yorkshire.
Kent’s Botany Bay made the top 10 along with Seagrove Beach on the Isle of Wight.
Many of the top beaches are Blue Flag Beach toowhich means they have a certain degree of cleanliness and safety.
Commenting on the findings, a spokesperson for LuxuryHotel said: “With the expectation that summer 2022 will return to normal as well as fine weather, the decision to choose a beach will be one of the hottest topics in the summer. Next few months.
“Those who want to snap a few beach shots or capture some memories will be delighted as the UK has a huge selection of great destinations on offer across the country.”
