LIFE’S A BEACH
Beach huts fill me with delight, I love their size, colour and sweet wood panelling. 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 please share some of your favourites in the comments.
BRIGHTON & HOVE, EAST SUSSEX
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.
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.
WEST WITTERING, WEST SUSSEX
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.
MUDEFORD SPIT / SANDBANK, DORSET
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 hope you have a wonderful day. If you’re looking for more colour, I’ve also shared seven of the most colourful London streets.
