TripAdvisor has unveiled its “best beaches in Europe” according to travellers, and despite tough competition, it seems two of the most-loved are right here on the UK’s shoreline. However, while well-known spots such as Brighton, Cornwall or Blackpool might spring to mind due to their popularity, the two to make the top 10 might be lesser frequented by the masses.
Luskentyre Beach, situated on the Isle of Harris and Woolacombe Beach nestled on Devon’s coast were voted the third and sixth-best, respectively.
The pair were voted on as part of the 2020 Travellers’ Choice Awards by TripAdvisor and were ranked based on quantity and quality of reviews and ratings left by travellers.
Luskentyre Beach is known for its stunning mountain views, white sandy stretches and crystal clear waters.
It is rarely busy due to its far-off location but is well worth the journey according to voters.

Meanwhile, Woolacombe Beach is a popular surfer’s paradise, boasting three-miles of golden sand and stunning aquamarine rolling surf.
Over the years the Devon hotspot has picked up a number of awards due to its cleanliness and aesthetic appeal.
One TripAdvisor reviewer commented: “Three miles of heaven. In wild weather, it is beautiful. In good weather, it is a delight.”
Though they did not make the top 10, a handful of other UK beaches were also put in the spotlight thanks to a wealth of positive reviews.
