Summer is simply not complete without a visit to the coast... so why not head down to the shore and join us in celebrating UK marine life?
This year we're championing dolphins - did you know that several species of dolphin can be spotted from our shores? Take a cliff-top walk, watch sea birds soar and see what else you might spot as you soak up the sounds of the lapping seas.
National Marine Week (25 July - 9 Aug) offers endless opportunities to day-trippers and holiday-makers keen to discover dolphin delights, whilst savouring our shorelines.
The first rule of dolphin-watching is to be patient! It’s best on a calm day, keeping the sun behind you to avoid the glare from the sea. A disturbance of the water’s surface is often the first sign but look out for large flocks of excited seabirds gathering overhead too; a sure sign there are plenty of fish about.
