Cornwall and Devon are locked in a battle of the beaches.

It is after Tripadvisor reviews rated their stretches of sand above those in the Duchy.

Woolacombe came second in a top 25 poll, beating Porthminster into third.

Reviewers of the St Ives beach said: "Lovely soft sand and very handy for railway station (and the town isn't far away either!). Perfect to go to on a sunny evening when most of the crowds have gone home, to play sports, paddle or just relax."

But Cornwall beats Devon based on the number of entries in the top twenty-five, with Fistral (number 6), Perranporth (number 13) and Godrevy (number 25).

Both Cornwall and Devon were pipped to the post as the UK's best beach, however.

That title went to Rhossili Bay near Swansea.

“These awards recognise the best beaches in the UK and beyond, according to those that really matter – travellers that have visited these beaches and given them the highest levels of praise,” commented Emma Shaw, TripAdvisor spokesperson.

Porthminster also made it to a top ten of Europe's best beaches, coming in at number 9, while Woolacombe managed number 5.
