Europe’s best beaches of 2015

So many people love a stunning beach, but do you know where the best beaches in Europe are to be found? This year’s TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards reveals the 25 best beaches rated by the public. Two of Europe’s top 10 beaches are in the UK. Woolacombe beach in Devon was rated fourth in the European list – and also 13th in the world – and Weymouth beach in Dorset came in eighth place. Looking further down the list at the top 25 beaches in Europe, there are three more British beaches, including 11th placed Rhossili beach on the Gower Peninsula, Wales; St Brelade’s Bay beach in Jersey at number 14; and Porthminster beach at St Ives in Cornwall in 18th position.
