Best British Beach Breaks

July 11, 2019 Best British Beach Breaks

Summer is never over in our minds and if you are looking for a coastal weekend away to get a dose of vitamin ‘sea’ these places shouldn’t fail.

Being a British brand we thought why not start by telling you what we think are the best British Beach breaks. It might be getting cooler but we strongly believe in freeing your knees, whatever the weather, so why not take your Rui’s on the road to these classic destinations.

  1. Newquay, Cornwall
    A popular seaside retreat for many a Brit, and easily accessible by car, train and plane, Newquay can accommodate any knee freeing enthusiast. Whether you want to come hone your surf skills, hire a house with friends and get away from the corporate grind for a few days or just enjoy the views with a pasty in hand Newquay will meet your needs.
    What looks fun: Jet Ski Safari
    What looks tasty: Rick Stein Fistral
  1. Salcombe, Devon
    Quaint but certainly not quiet, Salcombe is a hive of activity. The small town offers everything for foodies, fisherman and fashionistas…although best to buy your Rui’s before you go! There are a number of beaches you can access via foot or the towns ferry services but for those who fancy venturing further out of the estuary why not try your hand at some mackerel fishing.
    What looks fun: Learn to master a powerboat!
    What looks tasty: Cranchs Sweetshop
  1. UIG Sands, Isle of Lewis, Scotland
    If you fancy something different and want a decent road trip then head North, way North!! This is a long weekend destination but there is plenty to do and see. Uig Sands on the west coast offers white sands and tropical blue seas, although not tropical sea temperatures, but don’t let that deter you from donning those Rui’s for a ‘wee’ dip! After that you can tour the various historical attractions whilst enjoying a dram to warm your knees up.
    What looks fun: Whale Watching
    What looks tasty: The Boatshed
  1. Abersoch, Wales
    Originally a fishing port Abersoch is now a popular location for many and hosts Wakestock each year, where the wakeboarding community gathers for an almighty coastal get together! The main beach offers an array of water sport and if you want to leave the drinks somewhere to keep cool why not hire a beach hut!
    What looks fun: Stand up paddle boarding
