This is the blog award category for the best beach and coastal blogs currently active on the web. The world's extensive coastlines hold a special reverence in our hearts and draw people in on both tourism grounds and as residents, with the notion of living by the sea viewed as a hugely desirable prospect by most people. This romantic and long-held fascination with our shores has led to vibrant communities springing up wherever land meets water, and no two beaches are quite the same, from the pristine sands of the tropics to Newfoundland's rugged and prehistoric scenery. Capturing the essence of these magical places, as well as serving those who enjoy them, is not an easy task; we're certain you'll agree that the following award winners do just that.
