Golden sand, deep blue sky and the sound of waves gently breaking; these are the things dreams are made of.
The English Riviera has more beautiful, unspoilt beaches than we know what to do with. Whether you want to lie in the sun with a book, take part in one of a variety of water sports or just go for a swim, you certainly aren’t lacking in choice.
