A Kent seaside has been rated as the best seaside in the United Kingdom.
A table ranking the best 91 resorts across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern and Ireland put three of the county's in the top 10.
Data from The Solar Centre, an eco brand which uses solar technology, placed Deal as the best seaside location in the United Kingdom.
Figures were generated by looking at a range of factors people want for "a perfect day at the beach," including temperature, cloudiness, water temperature, fish and chips, parking, beaches and the price of a pint.
Deal was given an overall score of 8.37/10, Ramsgate was given 7.61 and Margate received 7.26.
Director of The Solar Centre Brian Davenport said: “While it is necessary to try and return the economy to a healthy state and keep tourism strong in the UK, it is also crucial that we take care when planning holidays.
"When choosing to take a trip to the beach, we must ensure the safety of others and act in a responsible way.”
Results differ from a recent Which? survery, which only 10 days ago placed Margate and Ramsgate as the worst seaside towns in Kent.
