From walking, swimming and relaxing, to water sports, cliff-diving and coasteering, Britain's beaches are awash with things to do, And, as Great Britain is a collection of islands, you're never too far from one of these sandy havens. 

We picked out a few of our favourite coastal shots from our Best of Great Britain group on Flickr that showcase just some of Britain's seaside gems.
