Beaumont Quay in Essex.
With their stunning white sands and crystal clear turqoise waters you could be forgiven for thinking these beaches are on an idyllic tropical paradise.
But amazingly each of these incredible seaside landscapes is in Britain - and they're among the country's best kept secrets.
The hidden locations of 400 hard-to-find and hard-to-reach beaches have been revealed in a new book by travel writer Daniel Start.
He has spent 10 years researching stretches of unspoilt sand along Britain's rugged coastline, which at 20,000 miles including its islands is among the longest in the world.
His book, called Hidden Beaches, lifts the lid on beautiful bays and tranquil hideaways from every corner of the country.
