It shows rock arches, coves, wild beaches and dunes and stunning lagoons. In its own words this book is indeed a ‘magical world of coastal exploration’. Daniel Start desrivbes each location through his own personal experience of it which is so useful and you almost feel you are there. He gives grid references, postcodes, the length of walk required, the nearest train station and cycle route.
As well as all these gorgeous places to explore there are sections on coasteering ( a new Craaaazzy sport!) boats and borads, safety and tides and probably most usefully for all of us a beach with the kids section where he shares loads of fun, free beach game ideas. These include boules, scavenger hunts and wet sand olympics. He talks through making an open fire as well as a host of beach arts and crafts ideas.
Covering the length and breadth of Britain even if you aren’t the best or most adventurous of swimmers this book showcases some amazing coastline thats well worth a family visit.
A really lovely book and it would make a fabulous gift or family resource.
