Isle of Wight named among 50 best beaches

Beach lovers may be tempted to book Isle of Wight holidays for this summer in order to enjoy one of the best examples available in the UK.

According to a report by the Independent, Osborne House is home to one of the top 50 beaches in the country and it is only going to be open for a short period of time.

The former residence of Queen Victoria is already a popular destination for those visiting the island and it is sure to be full of people later this summer when the monarch's private beach opens to the public for the first time on July 27th.

"With mini-golf tournaments and Punch and Judy, it will be a family affair," James Berresford is the chief executive of VisitEngland, was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

Queen Victoria once commented of Osborne House, which she regularly holidayed at during her time on the throne, that she could not imagine a "prettier" location.
