What makes a great beach?

Good looks, sure. But reader nominations this year also highlighted several less obvious factors - including tradition, accessibility, nostalgia and great facilities. A good beach can't just look good, it needs to be user-friendly to create great memories.

Curracloe in Co Wexford, named Ireland's Favourite Beach in our Reader Travel Awards 2020, has all of the above.
