Hip Hip Hooray for Our Blue Flag & Seaside Award Winners!

cover 2

The international Blue Flag Award is given only to the top beaches in the world, and a Seaside Award signifies quality, guaranteeing a clean, safe and attractive beach.  And so we’re over the moon to announce that our beaches at Trecco Bay, Ruda and Challaborough Bay are proud Blue Flag and Seaside Award winners once again this year!

Thirteen years running for Trecco

Our team at Trecco Bay are pleased as punch to have picked up Blue Flag status for the 13th consecutive year, not to mention earning a much coveted Seaside Award to boot! It really doesn’t get much better than having a multi-award winning beach on your doorstep.

Achieving both a Blue Flag and Seaside Award, Challaborough Bay’s sheltered little beach has proven its worth again in 2016. A huge well done to our hard working team for maintaining our pretty beach and making sure it’s soft sands and welcoming waters remain a top-notch hit with our guests year after year.


Reaping rewards at Ruda

It’s no wonder we’ve scooped another Seaside Award in Croyde! From organised beach cleans and inventive new recycling ideas, to checking water quality and looking after our local wildlife, our dedicated team at Ruda Holiday Park, headed by Beach Ranger Rose, are fully committed to keeping beautiful Croyde Bay Beach sparkling all year round.


Blue Flag Beaches

Plus, there are plenty of Blue Flag beaches to be found just a short drive from our parks. Check out our top picks for your British beach bucket-lists:

Polzeath Beach

10 mins from St Minver Holiday Park

This enormous, sandy beach’s gentle shelving and slow breaking waves make it an ideal spot for grabbing a board and hitting the surf. Or if that sounds a bit energetic, take a stroll up to the village and enjoy the views as you potter around the many shops, cafes and restaurants.


Lowestoft South Beach

20 mins from Cherry Tree Holiday Park

Lovely Lowestoft South Beach is well known for being on the ‘Sunrise Coast’ so why not experience the beautiful early morning sunrises and make everyone jealous with your amazing holiday snaps!


Sandbanks (celebrating its 29th consecutive Blue Flag!)

25 mins from Sandford Holiday Park

Home to the rich and famous, Sandbanks is without a doubt the most luxurious beach on the list. Sublime views, soft sands, water sports and shallow waters make this an ideal hub for those seeking the ultimate beach-side experience.


Carbis Bay Beach

40 mins from Sea Acres and Mullion holiday parks

White sands are framed by lush, green cliffs of sub-tropical plants reminiscent of a Caribbean beach. Plus, with calm waters and very little surf, Carbis Beach makes an ideal spot for families with young children looking for a paddle or swim.


Porthtowan Beach

30 mins from White Acres, Holywell Bay, Crantock Beach and Newquay holiday parks

Buckets and spades at the ready! Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one of the most popular surfing beaches in Cornwall, Porthtowan’s golden sands are a firm favourite of families and adventure seekers alike.


Oddicombe Beach

10 mins from Torquay Holiday Park

Think sheltered, safe waters surrounded by dramatic red cliffs. Hire a deck chair (or even a beach hut!) and enjoy a laid back day whiling away the hours by the shoreline. Plus, don’t miss a trip on the Babbacombe Cliff Railway to take in those stunning views from the top!


Weymouth Beach

20 mins from Warmwell Holiday Park

Just a few minutes from the town centre and historic harbour lies one of Dorset’s most popular beaches. From those wanting to relax peacefully in the sunshine to others wanting to get involved in the various events that take place on this beach, there is something for everyone on this glorious 3 mile stretch of coastline.
