Contrary to popular belief we have some really lovely beaches in England. I've just come back from a break in one of our towns on the east coast, and the beach has a charm all of it's own at this time of year. The vast expanse of golden sand was deserted apart from the occasional person walking their dog, and a couple of fishermen. I didn't actually go onto the sand but had a couple of very enjoyable walks along the promenade. I was lucky with the weather as the sun was out - weak, but it was there. It made me feel good to be alive. Do you like the seaside 'out of season' ? Photo from Pixabay, but it resembles that beach.

I don't know about in your area, but dogs aren't allowed on most of our beaches from May until the end of September.

No matter what beach there is, regardless of any reviews people may have, the beach itself never disappoints. I'm always in awe how such a big beautiful body of water could even exist as it does! As our weather is pretty mild all year 'round, we can go to the beach almost anytime - for us it's only about a half hour drive away. Sounds like you had a most lovely time!

@much2say You are lucky to live near the beach, though I'm not too far away - 70 miles. Yes, I did have a great time thanks.

@much2say I suppose it's more about not being able to enjoy the beaches because of the weather.

I like most places 'out of season'. Less people usually and it's nice to see the 'other side' of places too.

I've only been to a beach twice both times in summer. So much for what I may know, right?

@rebelann What - only twice in your whole life? Did you not have family vacations as a child, or did you go somewhere else?

When I was real small dad kept getting orders for new bases here and there so we'd be on the road a lot @jaboUK then after he was stationed here our vacations were usually spent in the outskirts of Dallas with his parents but only when he was in the states, dad served in Korea and then in the late 60s he was in Okinawa. It's well over 700 miles to a beach in any direction from here so I only went once as a kid when mom took us back in 1963 and the second time I went I was about 25 or so.

I chose to go to Goa in the rains surely an out of the season experience. The beaches there were washed out and clean and there was greenery all round.

I go to the beach more often when I have too many cobwebs in my mind. Then, I would sit there watching the tide in/out until dusk arrived.

Beaches are always attractive and I love to go to a beach. I live in a land locked city and there is no beach around my city. The nearest sea beach is some 800 Kms away from my city, therefore, it is always an exciting experience to visit a beach.

@jaboUK The sea is often warmer than the air -something to do with the gulf stream - so taking the plunge isn't so bad though we are a rare breed who do so.

The seaside out of season is one of my favourite places. The best seaside I ever went to was on the Lincolnshire coast. Completely deserted, no toilets or food places, and a twenty minute walk to get there from the car park. Beautiful.

The Lincolnshire coast is lovely too and that beach you went to sounds very isolated.
