Scarborough Named Top Three Favourite Childhood Beach

A busy day in Scarborough

Scarborough has been named as one of UK holidaymakers' best-loved beaches, according to a survey conducted by Post Office Travel Services. 

More than 2,000 people contributed to the poll which asked which beaches brought back the happiest memories from people's childhood.

The beaches which evoked the fondest memories were dominated by UK resorts, with only 12 per cent naming a foreign beach.

Scarborough was the East Coast's favourite beach, finishing third in the list behind the bright lights of Blackpool and the fashionable resort of Brighton.

Participants were also asked to name their current favourite beach. As may well be expected, overseas resorts featured much more prominently amongst today's top beaches with three-in-five holidaymakers (61 per cent) naming a foreign beach.

Spanish resorts take up three of seven top 20 places held by foreign beaches – with the Maldives, Sydney's Bondi Beach and Miami Beach in Florida being some of the furthest afield.

Scarborough - as many of our readers will agree - still holds lots of appeal, featuring at number seven above Tenerife, the largest of Spain's Canary Islands.

Perhaps most surprisingly however is Blackpool which appears to be as popular as ever, beating over 200 beaches worldwide to the top spot.
