As an island, the UK has a huge number of towns built on the coast, perfect for a vacation. Here are some of the most impressive.

Bamburgh, Northumberland

Bamburgh is a small town found on the Northeastern coast of England. It is a site of great historical significance, and boasts one of the most intact medieval castles in the UK. The castle overlooks Bamburgh Beach, a beautiful sandy beach that is perfect if you want a less busy day on the coast.

Boscastle, Cornwall

Boscastle is a small Cornish fishing village on the Northern coast of England. It has several great pubs, as well as a very popular ‘Museum of Witchcraft and Magic’. Boscastle is situated right on the South West Coast Path and has incredible walks both directions. Tintagel, the supposed seat of the legendary King Arthur, is within walking distance and is a must-see for visitors to this wonderful area.

Lynmouth, Devon

Lynmouth is a village in North Devon that is also situated on the Southwest Coast Path. It is also the start or endpoint of the Two Moors Way, a hike which takes walkers across Devon from Wembury on the South Coast to Lynmouth or vice versa. Lynmouth also has a funicular railway which takes you to and from the town of Lynton, and both towns have an array of lovely pubs and cafes to visit.
