Another vote for Whitley Bay from me, there are loads of excellent places to eat, drink and relax. It's a far cry from as little as ten years ago when Friday and Saturday nights were absolute carnage, and bank holiday weekends were totally mad. It was odd living there and having flashbacks of a younger me engaging in all kinds of unspeakable behaviour as I walked around with my young daughter.

I live in Roker now, a stones throw from the beach, and while the area isn't as nice, the beach is just as lovely. I can't actually think of a bad bit of coastline around these parts, there are a couple of power stations at Blyth and Hartlepool which are a bit hideous, but nothing else comes to mind.

Reminded me of a couple of places that had slipped the memory, Berwick On Tweed and Seahouses.

Seahouses is lovely, and the start of the Great North Bike Ride (which I've not done for a while on account of the number of idiots taking part). Berwick I find a bit strange, but then I think that of most places in the borders.

Pittenweem on the East Neuk of Fife is a bit of a favourite for me. My god parents own a cottage on the seafront spent many a happy holiday there.

Also like the Pembrokshire coast lovely fishing villages like Little Haven. and loads of great beaches nearby but far less overcrowded than Cornwall.

I only know Cleethorpes and Skegness, can't say I'm impressed.
They are the best one's.

Quick plug for North Devon.
Quieter and less commercialised than South/East Devon coasts. Fantastic sandy beaches for surfing at Westward Ho!, Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe. Interesting rocky coastline walks along the South West coastal path with breath taking views.
My favourite places are Mortehoe Point, Saunton Sands and Braunton Burrows, Ilfracombe harbour, Instow/Appledore and Holdstone.
I'll admit a bias - I live a mile from the beach at Saunton. ^_^
