Best Beaches For Deckchair Hire
Watergate Bay, Cornwall
This west facing beach, at the bottom of cliffs, is very popular with surfers and like all the beaches on this list is recommended by the Marine Conservation Society as being clean. It is big enough and far enough from both Newquay and Padstow to offer lots of room, peace and quiet to relax in your hired deckchairs. And when hunger strikes there is a restaurant right on the beach.
Llandudno is a broad sand and shingle beach set into a crescent shaped bay which is flanked by the rocky headlands of the Great and Little Orme.
