What's the best part of the UK&Irish coast?

What part of the UK & Irish coast is your favourite for boating?
Myself I'd have to say through the swellies, past puffin island and onwards.
My area is a bit bland until you get towards Walney island.

I'd love to take my time going around the west coast of scotland. Could spend a good few months doing that. But can't see it happening due to time, tides and t**ts!

It depends on the criteria used for "best bit"
Do you mean scenery or do you include places to stop off for food etc?

Love the Fal Estuary...bit of a trek down there (260 miles from home - even further for you John) but we think it's worth it...we're there at Easter launching from Mylor Harbour

Hoping to do the Menai Straits later in the year. A mere 150 miles away!

Well I would say it's a choice of 2. Haven't seen Ireland yet.

My own area - Gower around to Milford haven and St Davids.

And prob the best place in the whole world - West Coast of Scotland - shame the weather is awful and it's full of hairy Scotsmen wearing skirts!!!

Well its the Summer Isles for me !, just when you think you know them pretty well you get closer to one bit of one of them, and something reveals its self that you've never seen before The Shiants are pretty good too, for a further cruise , but I'd like to explore down towards the Kyles of Lochalsh one of these days ah summer .. bring it on

Oh no, I'm agreeing with Codprawn again.

South Cornwall is pretty good too. Some good estuaries to explore and stop off for a drink & a bite to eat
