Durdle Door was ranked the UK’s most beautiful beach and had over 270,000 Instagram hashtags.
The stunning beach is located on the Jurassic coast in Dorset and is just a short walk from equally gorgeous Lulworth Cove.
Durdle Door is world-famous for its 10,000 year old limestone arch which is the perfect selfie spot.
Tourists should always stick to footpaths at Durdle Door and should never jump from the arch as it is very dangerous.
The stunning tidal beach has white sand, turquoise sea and rock stacks for tourists to enjoy and is located on the Lizard peninsula.
Formby Beach in Merseyside was the fifth most beautiful spot and has some of Europe’s best sand dune habitats.
Many rare species can be spotted on the beach including natterjack toads and greater spotted woodpeckers.
The beach is managed by the National Trust and BBQs and fires are not allowed at any point.
