The Big Beach Picnic
This summer we’re inviting everyone to head to the coast for the Big Beach Picnic on 4 July to celebrate what makes British beaches special. Beaches we look after across England and Wales will be hosting picnicking events with activities for all the family.
Bring your sandwiches and spades, get together and have fun at one of the 26 Big Beach Picnic events. There’s nothing better than rolling your trousers up for a paddle, feeling the sand between your toes and spending the day breathing in the sea air.
There’ll be plenty of fun to join in with from sand sculpture competitions and big beach art to 50 Things to do before you're 11 ¾ activities and beach games. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can have a go at surfing, orienteering or geocaching and discover some crazy creatures in a rock pool.
