A BEACH in the UK has received praise for its clean stretches of sand and the fact it remains quiet during the summer.
Finding a seaside spot with miles of untouched sand during the school holidays might sound impossible, but such a place exists.
Sandilands sits next to a new nature reserve on Lincolnshire’s
coastline and remains quiet even when it gets warmer – despite its proximity to one of the UK's most popular seaside resorts.
The dog-friendly and peaceful shoreline has been described as the best kept secret on the UK's east coast and is seen as a quieter alternative to the nearby tourist spots of Skegness and Mablethorpe.
It also has a nature reserve right next to it that is cared for by the National Trust, which has an outdoor café serving food and drink.
Adding to the charm of the beach are rows of beach huts, painted with different colours, sitting alongside the promenade behind the sand dunes.

One wrote: "One of the East Coast's best kept secrets.
"Quiet, serene and clean."
Another said: "Lovely long and clean beach with a few dunes. Very underused on a typical August weekend."
A third person was impressed with the vast array of wildlife they were able to see at the beach.
They added: "What a long beautiful beach, all dog friendly, very clean and you can sometimes see the seals having a rest on the beach as well as lots of beautiful shells and starfish."
Seals and starfish aren't the only marine animals that visit the shoreline either, with harbour porpoise, white-beaked dolphins and even minke whales all spotted in the Lincolnshire waters this year.
Although it remains quiet year-round there's plenty nearby to explore.
Some of Lincolnshire's highest-rated attractions include Lincoln castle, Lincoln cathedral and Fantasy Island theme park.
Hotels nearby offer rooms from around £31.50pp per night, but there are still cheaper options.
Tent pitches in campsites in the region start at around £14 per night.
