In Scotland, near the town of Angus is Lunan Bay Beach. The beach stretches for nearly two miles and looks towards the rising sun.

This is a great spot for bird watching; pods of dolphins are frequently seen meters from the water’s edge.

After the rains, the sands glitter as agates and other gemstones are revealed.

3. Tynemouth Beach

Also called Longsands Beach, the waters of Tynemouth are almost as blue as the flag flapping in the wind. Outside Newcastle, the beach stretches for about a mile; it is clean and unspoiled.

The beach is peaceful and family-friendly. Pale and soft sand, you can build sandcastles or take a walk.

The beach is popular among surfers during the swell. You can dip in the water when the swell recedes in the summer.

Owing to its size, the beach is never crowded. You can enjoy a stroll along the water’s edge in solitude or in the company of a lover.

The beach is great for family, and dogs are allowed. The view from the top of the surrounding cliffs is breathtaking.

The verdant green landscape adds to the calming atmosphere of the sea.
