17. Studland Bay, Dorset
Those who like to strip down to their birthday suit will enjoy Studland Bay in Purbeck – it’s the most popular naturist beach in the UK. National Trust-protected, the beach is a golden strip of sand, from which you can admire views of Old Harry Rocks chalk formations and the nearby Isle of Wight.
18. Kynance Cove, Cornwall
A magnificent chink in the Cornish coastline north of Lizard Point, Kynance Cove has been hugely popular since Victorian times; Alfred Lord Tennyson was a regular visitor. The rocks round here are coloured green and red, polished smooth by the endless waves.
