Top 5 / Europe

Unsurprisingly for an island nation, the United Kingdom boasts some incredible coastal walks. Here are some of the best routes to catch some fresh sea air.

 

Jurassic Coast

The stretch of coast from Devon to Dorset is famous for its spectacular scenery and the fossils that are often found. Take on the whole 95-mile route or dip in and out for a more relaxed experience.

 

Compton Bay

To do this walk you will have to take a ferry to the Isle of Wight, a small island off the south coast of England. Follow the chalk ridge that runs through the middle of the island to Compton Bay, where you will be treated to dramatic views.

 

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

This 186-mile path takes around two weeks to complete in full, giving hikers the chance to discover the spectacular scenery of south Wales. Luckily, there are day and half-day hikes for those that don’t have much time.

 

Norfolk Coast Path

The eastern county of Norfolk is famous for its flat geography, but it’s also got some amazing coastline to explore. Make sure to check out the great beach at Holkham, and catch the sunset at Wells-next-the-Sea.

 

Exmoor National Park

This is one of Britain’s most underappreciated national parks, sat on the coast in southwest England. The scenery here is fantastic, with some real wilderness that you would struggle to find anywhere else in the United Kingdom, apart from Scotland, and the coast around the village of Lynmouth-Lynton is home to some rare coastal woodland.

Bitter Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
