While the government has promised to try and clear the backlog of passport applications, there is still no guarantee that you will receive yours in time and some of you may have even missed your holiday already as a result of the chaos. Of course it is incredibly frustrating to have to cancel or even lose out on your foreign trip, however all is not lost. The UK (islands included) is blessed with almost 20,000 miles of coastline, much of which is accessible and part of which is home to some incredible beaches. We have put together a list of 10 beaches which would make great holiday locations or even day out destinations are the country. Some you would of heard of while others and well-kept secrets but all have something very special. So forget about Majorca and Antalya and think about staying at home this summer!
