Britons looking for a sea and sand filled break in 2024 need not look further than the UK, as two British beaches are hailed as some of the best

Many Britons who dream of the beach think of sunny paradises such as Spain, Portugal or Greece.

However, the UK is home to some beautiful stretches of sand, stones and sea. Two have been named as beaches that "stand out for their commitments to sustainability".

In Tripadvisor's Travellers' Choice Best of the Best 2024, it named the "best of the best beaches".

While no UK beaches made the top 25, two were honoured in another important beach lineup.

Sandbanks beach and Saundersfoot beach were both named some of the best beaches when it comes to sustainability.

Sandbanks beach in Poole took the number one spot on the list, with Tripadvisor stating: "Sandbanks beach is a family-friendly spot with soft, golden sand, clear water, and incredible views. It's a popular beach, but even during peak season there's plenty of space.

"Try some water sports, go horseback riding, or bring your dog (it's pet-friendly with some seasonal restrictions) and take a walk on the shore.

"There are plenty of food options, from beachside cafes to nearby restaurants, plus parking's a breeze."
