4 of The Most Colourful Collections of Beach Huts

18th February 2016

Beach Huts


Beach huts fill me with delight, I love their size, colour and sweet wood panelling. So today I’m sharing a few of my favourite seaside locations and some of the most colourful collections of beach huts. I’m hoping this list will develop as I visit more and more enchanting beaches, so do please share some of your favourites in the comments.


I grew up in West Sussex and spent a lot of time in Brighton I’m therefore quite sentimental about this row of pretty beach huts. The huts are set back from the beach which makes a walk along the promenade a colourful one, and there’s always newly painted beauties to discover. (More Brighton beach huts.)

This paint palette of beach huts can be found on the Bournemouth promenade. They overlook the gloriously sandy beach and are just a few minutes walk from the pier. I adore the blue, turquoise and teal ones and with a backdrop of greenery they’re perfectly photogenic.

The beach huts on West Wittering are adorable. They sit on a stunning stretch of golden sand and it’s a place that feels a million miles away from the city. There’s a car park nearby and if you visit I’d suggest taking a huge picnic hamper because you won’t want to leave. (More West Wittering and the Sussex coast.)

There are a few places that make me smile from ear to ear and this is one of them. Although these are beach houses rather than huts, I’m sure you’ll forgive me for including them. There are over 350 in total and they currently fetch between £215,000 – £240,000! To reach the beach houses, I’d recommend parking at Hengistbury Head where you can walk or catch a train. There’s also a boat from nearby Mudeford Quay.

      I went to Camber Sands many times as a child but I don’t recall the beach huts. I bet you had fun living in Brighton!

    I love the colours. We have to keep our beach hut white so I relish in the colours of the lucky ones who can paint them crazy bright colours!

    Just delightful, thanks for sharing! I saw some lovely ice cream coloured beach huts along the front at Lyme Regis when we holidayed there last year. You’d love it there! xx

    What a lovely post! I’m also a huge fan of beach huts. We hired one on the Essex coast, once and spent the day in it. It was fab!

    These are so beautiful! I was in Whitstable recently and the huts are gorgeous there too (although they were a little less colourful in the rain :p )

    I absolutely love beach huts as it’s such a British thing and my dream is to one day own a pastel coloured one of my own and spend lazy days making tea and enjoying the simple things 🙂
