If you like your holidays traditional and your beaches quaint, head to the stretch of sand at Lytham St Annes. A gem of a sandy beach, this one has donkey rides in the summer, cafes and those all-important ice cream parlours just a short stroll away, and even beach huts available for hire. Beautiful, pastel-coloured and complete with mains electricity, the beach huts make the perfect spots to enjoy time together by the sea during a break in the area.
With enough space to enjoy your day on the sand (even on a sunny summer’s day), the beach has everything you need to while away some much-needed time on the sand. This is the kind of beach that’s so pretty you can be just as happy wandering along the shore on a winter’s day as sitting on the sand during the summer, and it’s a gorgeous alternative to the busier beaches in Blackpool itself.
