This review is from: Wild Swimming Coast: Explore the Secret Coves and Wild Beaches of Britain (Paperback)
I will admit to being slightly biassed - one of the photos in the the book is mine - but in fact the end result is simply fantastic. If you like to seek out worthwhile swimming beaches, this is the guide. If you want to find a beach where no-one is using a mobile phone, where the only people with you have also had to make a real effort to access the secret beach, then this is the guide. Like its older sibling, Wild River Swimming, the book is more than a description of what to expect. There are also tidbits of history, local lore and the like to set you thinking about the places you visit.
Some locations are well known, some are not. Some are naturist friendly (or clothing optional) and you soon come to realize that naturists know their beaches better than anyone.
We have bought several copies as gifts to people who we know like to spend time on remote beaches. We just hope they won't all show up at the same time!
