Voters have until tomorrow to vote for North Bank beach and Snowdonia National Park in a competition to find the nation’s best beauty spots.

The Gwynedd attractions have been shortlisted in the BBC Countryfile Magazine awards 2020.

North Beach is up for Beach of the Year against Freshwater West, Pembrokeshire, Murlough Bay, County Down, Felixstone Beach, Suffolk and Lepe Country Park and beach.

Close to Porthmadog on the Llyn Peninsula, this sandbar at the end of Black Rock Sands beach offers a vast expanse of wilderness ruled by shorebirds, with spectacular views of mountains to the south-east. Its dune system is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Snowdonia is up for National Park of the Year against the Yorkshire Dales, South Downs, Cairngorms, and Northumberland.

Of Snowdonia, the BBC said: “Enjoy staggering mountain vistas and wild walks as well as the world’s fastest zip wire, an inland surfing lagoon and underground trampolining centre. The park has been involved in pine marten reintroduction in North Wales and also supports local community regeneration schemes."

Now in its eighth year, the annual awards recognise the best of the British countryside, from top holiday spots to mighty landmarks and glorious gardens.

Public voting closes tomorrow, Friday, 28 February, at 11.59pm, so head on over to to vote.
