The golden stretch of sand, probably the UK’s most famous, is approximately 750 metres in length and is home to some of the world’s biggest sports events such as the annual Boardmasters Festival.

Fistral Beach is one of the UK’s most finest beaches.

Fistral Beach was ranked 8th in the final results, with the fabulous Perranporth Beach named as 5th best beach in the poll.

The results mean Cornwall’s beaches are still well and truly on the map. We’re lucky to have plenty of marvelous beaches to choose from, so let’s hope we can sneak a couple more into next year’s poll.
