Blackpool Beaches

There’s nothing quite like a day at the seaside, and Blackpool is one of the best beach resorts you will find in the UK. It was even recently awarded its first ever Blue Flag, putting it on par with other world renowned sites including the Mediterranean Sea and the Pacific coastline.
The whole family will love relaxing in the sun, taking a dip in the sea and enjoying an ice cream along the promenade here in Blackpool. There is plenty of space for sandcastles, sunbathing and family games, so you really can make a day of it.
Of course, Blackpool is also the only British beach resort to boast three fabulous piers, so don’t forget to pay these a visit as part of your day at the beach.
Let’s take a look at what you’ll find along Blackpool’s famous Golden Mile.
