New analysis from Ofcom shows that the West Sussex beach is the place to go for strong signal this summer, along with Studland Bay in Dorset, Portstewart Strand in Northern Ireland and Porthminster Beach in Cornwall – which secured the top three spots.

Many beaches in Wales filled the top ten ‘worst areas for 4G’.

Gary Beeston, managing director of Insurance2go, said: “We know how much importance people place on their phone images, and with the summer being the perfect time to photograph your memories, we wanted to make sure visitors to the coast choose the best beaches possible.

“The research clearly highlights Wales as a bit of a black hole for 4G signal, but at least visitors will now be prepared for the ‘failed to upload’ messages during their trip!”

The top ten beaches are:

1. Studland Bay, Dorset

2. Portstewart Strand, Northern Ireland

3. Porthminster Beach, Cornwall

4. Hengistbury Head, Dorset

5. Crosby Beach, Merseyside

6. St Anne’s Beach, Lancashire

7. Cleethorpes Beach, Lincolnshire

8. Whiterocks Beach, Northern Ireland

9. Portobello, Scotland

10. West Wittering, West Sussex
