Filey beach has once again beaten thousands of others across Europe to win a place in the top 20 best beaches in Europe for 2021, as chosen by Tripadvisor’s Travellers’ Choice.
It’s ranked 18th in Europe, outranking many famous beaches in places such as the French and Italian Riviera’s. It’s also the north of England’s the only representative in the Tripadvisor’s Travellers Choice Awards.
The only British beaches to rank above Filey’s are Bournemouth (5th), Porthminster (10th) and Perranporth (16th), the latter two being in Cornwall.
Tripadvisor say: “These awards highlight travellers’ favourite beaches across the globe, from sweeping white sand and turquoise waters in tropical climates, to dramatic cliffs and pounding surf in some of the most secluded spots on Earth, the awards are based on the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings from Tripadvisor travellers for beaches, gathered over the past 12 months.”
The best in the world was named as Australia’s Whitehaven Beach followed by Santa Maria Beach in Cuba.
However, I bet you can’t get a cuppa and a bacon butty in Cuba …
