PremierLeague-News.Com - The Man O'War Beach is worth the journey!
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting hotter. With summer just around the corner, it is the time that people want to head outdoors to enjoy the lovely weather while they can. Staycations have risen in popularity since the coronavirus pandemic as Brits head out to beaches for a dip in the water. Berkshire is inland which means there aren't any beaches just a stone throw away, though Reading is not too far from the coastline as it finds itself around 50 miles from the nearest beach. With a mini heatwave over the past few, a beach is the perfect place to visit. There are an abundance of beaches less than two hours away for an easy drive to enjoy a day out at the seaside. Although there is one in particular that is that tiny bit further stretching the journey by around 15 more minutes.

The Man O'War Beach is a shingled beach boasting more space that Durdle Door with crystal clear waters. What makes it better than Durdle Door? It is dog-friendly! The whole family, including your four-legged friend, can enjoy a day in the sun paddling in the cool water. The enclosed cove lies on the Dorset coast which makes you feel like you are abroad with the stunning views. The only downside to this beach is that it is quite a steep climb up and down large steps, therefore it is not wheelchair friendly. Fear not though as the path that leads to the top of Durdle Door and Man O'War Beach offers breathtaking views of each beach. It is a little chilly from the wind as it is higher up but you can still enjoy a picnic without having to touch the beaches themselves. Plus you can get incredible pictures! Durdle Door features in some scenes from Wilde starring Stephen Fry in 1997. The Dorset landmark was also used for the beach scene in Nanny McPhee starring Emma Thompson in 2005.
