New study reveals how Brits can experience Australia’s Hyams Beach in the UK

September 4, 2020 Visit Europe No Comments Email Email

The whitest sand in the UK can be found at Kynance Cove in St Ives, a cool shade of grey, which matches up perfectly with the powder-fine sand of Hyams Beach on the shores of Jervis Bay.

Perfect for those Instagram holiday shots, both beaches have angelically white sand, allowing visitors to imagine they’ve been whisked away to a tropical holiday resort. No need for an expensive plane flight halfway around the world for Brits, Oz’s most beautiful beach can be found in Cornwall, a short drive away for many.

Brits are ecstatic to find that they can get a topical beach holiday closer to home, and many hope to visit the real thing in person once travel restrictions lift.

The rest of the study matches sand shades from the beaches of the UK to exotic destinations around the world to show how similar UK beaches can be to those in different countries. Holidaymakers can find the white sand of Cornwall’s beaches in sunny Australia, while the darker beaches of the east can be found on the west coast of the U.S.

You can view all 10 UK beaches with their international counterparts here including Walvis Bay in Namibia and Baia Do Sancho in Brazil.

Catherine Lynn, Chief Customer Officer at Parkdean Resorts said:

“The UK is craving a holiday after months of lockdown, which has seen many people all over the country stuck inside and missing out on essential time away. With the easing of the restrictions, there has been a great emphasis put on UK staycations, something some holidaymakers may not have considered in the past.

“While international travel is still under various restrictions, we want to encourage people to see all that the UK has to offer on our very own shores so we’ve created Sand Tones as a love letter to UK’s beaches in the hopes that people will fall back in love with staycationing.

“This summer we’re looking forward to welcoming back holidaymakers to our resorts all over the country where they’ll be able to visit many of these wonderful beaches in a safe environment. We’re implementing strict hygiene and social distancing measures to ensure all our customers and staff are safe.”
