The weather might be doing its best to ruin the summer, but it can’t dampen the spirits of the British public.
Britons looking to spend the day at the seaside can still opt for a staycation by England’s best beach.
A new ranking from holiday provider, Parkdean Resorts, looked at TikTok stats to see which of England’s beaches have grown the most in popularity.
The team looked at the most viewed beaches on the app over the last year to find England’s best seaside destination.
While Cornwall often dominates best beach rankings, this time a “beautiful” beach in the north of England grabbed the top spot.
Whitley Bay in Tyne & Wear grabbed the top spot on the list, while Cornwall didn’t even make the top three.
With miles of golden sand, breathtaking views and St Mary’s Lighthouse, it’s not hard to see why the beach is so popular.
