The Beach Price Index compiled by TravelBird includes seven UK beaches in its price comparisons. So where's the best beach value in the UK?
To calculate the affordability of each location, the price of five essentials were researched, and in a new addition to the Beach Price Index, the facility fee (entrance fee plus cost of sunbed and umbrella) has also been included.
The essentials include the cost of a bottle of sun cream (200 ml), a bottle of water (500 ml), a beer (33 cl bottle), lunch (including a drink and dessert for one person), and an ice cream. The total cost of these six factors was then calculated to determine the overall affordability and ranking of each coastal destination.
Here is how the UK beaches included compared:
And, of course you can reduce the cost of your day at the seaside by taking a picnic!
