Oh we do like to be beside the seaside. And the good new is, Brits don’t even need to go abroad to enjoy the beach. the coast of Devon and the town of Torquay. This luxury beach will feel like something straight out of an exotic location. With palm trees and a marina, you won’t even know you’re so close to home! There are British traditions that must be upheld during a British beach holiday. Stock up on sticks of rock, and make sure to eat plenty of fish and chips while you’re there!
