It's competition time!



Here's your chance to win a copy of
The Book of Tides!


 The Book of Tides: a journey through the coastal waters of our island

by William Thomson
Quercus Publishing 2016, £20.00


The Book of Tides is a book for all of us who feel the pull of the sea and the tug of the tide

To win a copy of this fantastic, inspiring hardback book, all you need to do is decide what has been your favourite find on the strandline.


Send a photo of it, and tell us why it is your favourite, to hello@beachstuff.uk


We'll put the photos on the beachstuff.uk website and our favourites on the Beach Stuff facebook page. The photo with the most likes and shares wins! It couldn't be easier!

Photographs can be of natural things - shells, fish, seaweed etc. ...

... or they can be manmade things like pallets or Lego pieces. It's up to you!


You don't have to be a great photographer, you can send in more than one photo, it can be from any beach in the world, you don't have to give up copyright of your photo ... there is no catch! Details below.


















































Have a look at our galleries of beach finds above.



And now for the small print (which we've tried to make normal size so you can actually read it):
