HOLIDAYMAKERS in the UK have been stunned by a beach that they claim makes them feel like they're abroad.

Staycations are becoming increasingly popular with Brits who aren't keen on forking out for flights and hotels abroad.

Fortunately, there are plenty of stunning beaches in the UK where they can still feel like they're in a different country.

One of those beaches is Beer Beach in Devon, which one TikToker said makes her feel like she's in Portugal.

Alisha, who is known as alishagallagher_ on the social media platform, recently visited the beach for a dip and was left feeling impressed.

A caption over the video read: "Can't afford a flight out of the UK? Then go and have a beach day and pretend you're in Portugal."
