The map of the best beaches highlights the popular beaches in the UK. Kessingland Beach is one of them.
The Kessingland Beach is known for its red-gold sand that washes over a vast area of the beach. It boasts of being Britain's biggest cleanest coastal expanse which makes it best to be visited by families and holidaymakers.
The Kessingland Beach is located in Suffolk, and it can be accessed through London Stansted Airport via Ipswich Hospital, which takes around 30 minutes. After that, you will need roughly half an hour drive by car from London Stansted Airport to the Kessingland Beach
The Kessingland Beach has a pretty long history dating back to the Iron Age settlement found in the nearby Aldeby, which suggests that this area is famous for fishing and natural ambience. The legendary Anglo-Saxon lead King Alfred the Great had travelled far south by sea, most likely from his Kent ish home to Wissant, Pas-de-Calais in 885AD and eventually conquered the nearby towns of Colchester and Canterbury.
Besides these historical events, Kessingland was used as one of the landing sites for Operation Neptune on 6 June 1944, including D Day, during which the beach had already been cleared before the D Day landings.
The Kessingland beach is popular among tourists as it has got an award for 'Best Beach' in the UK. It boasts a long golden stretch of beach that, together with its clean sandy surface, makes it very famous among families and holidaymakers who come from near and far to enjoy the natural ambience that mesmerizes you into wanting more. Kessingland is a great place to visit as it's quiet and still beautiful and safe for all holidaymakers.
Kessingland Beach is open all year round, and it's accessible to everyone who wants to feel been in a paradise. St Bees Beach is another special place along the coastline of Cumbria, although it is quite simply a small cove and would not attract too many visitors if it was in any other coastal region. St Bees beach was often referred to as 'the most beautiful bay in England,' but that changed when Donald Campbell, who owned land near Walney Island, died while setting speed records on Coniston Water in his boat, the 'Bluebird.' His young fiancée was living at St Bee. She became so distraught by Donald's death that she jumped from the local rocks into the sea and drowned.
St Bees beach forms part of the St Bees Head Lighthouse Coast, stretching south to Seascale and north to Silloth. The coast was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) on 1 October 1967 and is now protected as one of the most attractive parts of Cumbria.
