1 Dorset Mudeford is famous for its row of colourful huts - and for the prices some of them have fetched, upwards of £100,000 - it also has some of the few beach huts you can actually sleep in, including Needleview, which sleeps four in two singles and a bunk. There's a kitchen with gas burner, grill and fridge, and the use of nearby loos and showers.

Generally, the most popular tourist destination for beaches are located on East and South coast of Korea. With some minor exceptions, I'd avoid West coast in general because most of their beaches look like this: I know one of your primary concerns is proximity of the destination via public transportation, but what you must know is that Korea has one of ...

You should always be cautious, never trust any place, country or city, even those with fame of secure. In the particular scenario of beaches, I never bring with me valuables that are unnecessary. As I will be taking a proper shower back in the hotel, I seldom require any expensive watch, credit cards, rings or phones in the beach. The same applies to ...

I haven't tried any of these, but here are a few ideas. They are not mutually exclusive: Put lots of heavy rocks in your bag. Rocks are much more dense than bricks or concrete, and are easy to find almost anywhere. A heavy bag is harder to steal conspicuously. If there are no rocks around, then fill plastic shopping bags with sand and put those in your ...

To protect your stuff from being stolen on the beach, don't bring them to the beach. Your job, when combating theft, is to make everything you have uninteresting. If they see you put stuff in your car, that's interesting. If they see you leave stuff on the beach, that's interesting. If you drive up, park, and get out of your car ready to get in the water ...

Buy some disposable diapers and some peanut butter... Craftily hide your belongings (you have limited space) in a 'soiled' diaper next to your towel.

There's quite a few bars, restaurants, and hotels adjacent to or close to the beach. You could ask the staff if you could leave your stuff there. I found the beach between the W-hotel and Port Olimpic near Barceloneta (https://goo.gl/maps/V0vqc) the most pleasant. But it's quite busy there, especially in the summer. As for lockers, never seen them there.

I would recommend you to take a train and go a beach further from the city, where you can be a bit less cautious; but in the beaches of Barcelona, never, ever, leave your stuff alone when your are going to swim. Barcelona is a top destination for tourists, but also for pickpockets. They are really good and there are probably some of them in the beach waiting ...

is it safe to leave your belongings on the beach when you go for a dip? Of course not. No. If not, are there any lockers on the beaches in Barcelona? You're off to Sitges or? In broad general terms there's a shortage of beach lockers in Barcelona area. Further, it would be completely normal that lockers are removed, closed, added, broken, being ...

You could invest in a travel safe. The one pictured below is water-resistant, though not waterproof. So you can't carry it into water. It can be fixed to a pole or a piece of furniture via the cable that comes with it, though it would best if you leave it in the beach lockers when available so you wouldn't have to keep an eye on it.

I did that a lot for a period. I used several strategies: As a general rule take as little as possible and preferably things without value. Than just do one of the following: Check if the beach has lockers. There are some beaches with lockers and keys that you strap around the wrist. You find these systems many times in swimming pools but some beaches ...

I've been to the beach solo around the world a number of times. it's perfectly reasonable (in most civilized places) to leave a beach towel, a bag of things, and perhaps a chair if you're so inclined alone on the beach. If you're worried about someone stealing from you then covertly dig a hole in the sand and bury some stuff within this hole, fill it in, ...

Invest in a Dry Egg/Box My suggestion it to take as little valuables as possible, and carry them in the water with you when you go for a dip. What I usually do is I take some form of plastic ID, a bit of cash, a payment card and my phone. I leave everything else at home since most likely I won't need it on the beach. Everything I take easily fits in what ...

I´ve never been to Barcelona, but generally beaches have kiosks where you can buy drinks and food. I usually leave my belongings in a kiosk I intend to eat/drink something (or already have). Kiosk owners are usually more than happy to hold your belongings while you're in the water. If you don't intend to eat/drink something, it's a small price you pay for a ...
