Unreal Urbeaches

June 12, 2009

At Travel PR we were delighted to hear that an urban beach is to return to Bishops Park in London (London Evening Standard, 11 June). Urbeaches provide the perfect antidote to hectic city life, here are some suggestions of where to go when you feel the need for a little bit of sand between your toes:

Strandbar Mitte (Berlin) – Monbijou Park

Paris Plage (Paris) – the banks of the Seine

Water Taxi Beach (New York) – South Street

Strand West (Amsterdam) – next to Beatrix Park

Nautholsvik Thermal Beach (Reykjavik) – this downtown beach is heated by hot water flowing into the bay. Camilla Colley.
