TripAdvisor's announced it's top 25 UK beaches for 2016, and 3 of them are here in Yorkshire!

Filey Beach, Whitby Beach and Scarborough Beach all feature in the top 15.

But it's Devon's Woolacombe Beach that's been named the UK's best rated beach for the second year in a row.

The beach boasts a three-mile long stretch of golden sand and rolling, unbroken surf which makes it the ideal hotspot for surfers.

The sheer length of the beach means that there is no shortage of sand to sit down and relax on during the busy summer months.
