Oh, dear. Brighton doesn’t fare too well in one man’s mission to rate the beaches of the world:
“Brighton had the dirtiest beach, alongside Bamburi in Mombassa, Kenya. It also had the least glamour, the worst view, the murkiest water, expensive sandwiches, “uncomfortable” pebbles, a lack of “fun” activities and only moderately friendly locals, although the waves were good.”
I think “moderately friendly locals” should be the new motto for Brighton and Hove.
To be fair, Brighton was only one of two European beaches to make into his list at all. Still, I’d be the first to admit that it can’t quite compare to Waikiki beach in Hawaii.
