Skegness in Top 10 list of best UK towns for seaside properties

Skegness is in the Top 10 list of the best UK towns for seaside properties.

More people are seeking to move to Skegness so they can enjoy the beach every day.

The list compiled by Showerstoyou.co.uk places the east coast resort 8th with 427 points out of 800.

Searches for properties by the sea have risen 160% over the past year.

Taking the crown as the best UK town for a seaside property is Margate with a total of 537 points out of a possible 800.

With just 107 rainy days each year, it is no wonder why Margate came first, scoring 97 points in this department. They also offer three blue flag certified beaches, the third highest of all 50 towns considered, and have an average of 1,871 hours of sunshine each year.

Following in second place is Weymouth totalling an impressive 528 out of 800. When it comes to air quality, Weymouth is among the best coming in at 16 degrees on the air quality index (AQI), contributing 91 points to their total score.

However, their average property price of £277,580 is among the factors pipping them from first place, earning them a measly 39 points in this department.

Trailing behind by only four is Torquay with 524 points. The town’s high score is thanks to low

average nightly Airbnb prices (£97) which scored them 91 out of 100 - it’s definitely among the more affordable options. The Devon town is also home to three blue flag beaches and a maximum temperature of 14.5 degrees, so there’s a lot to like.
