WINTER is definitely on its way, with days getting shorter and the temperature starting to drop.

However, there are places where those of us desperate to hold on to summer can still get a bit of sun this year.

Research from Parkdean Resorts has revealed which UK beaches stay the warmest and sunniest throughout autumn.

Cromer Beach in Norfolk is the UK's warmest autumn beach, with average temperatures of 17C throughout the season.

Cromer beach is also the sunniest beach in the UK all year round, with an average of 7.2 hours of sun per day during autumn.

Visitors to Cromer can watch the fishing boats catch the world-famous “Cromer crabs” while sitting on the warm sand and soaking up the sun.

Porthcurno Beach in Cornwall is the second warmest beach in the UK outside the summer months.

The beach boasts an average temperature of 13.1C in autumn, which is still warm enough to enjoy, but worth taking an extra layer just to be on the safe side.

The research also found that Kynance Cove, also in Cornwall, ranked as the third warmest beach during the autumn months, with average temperatures of 13C.
