Two Dorset tourist attractions have made a list of most popular Instagram locations.

New research has revealed the most Instagram-worthy yachting locations in the UK based on their popularity on social media.

The Jurassic Coast was crowned fifth in the list whilst Lulworth Cove rounded off the top ten.

The study was conducted by boat insurance experts Insuremy, which analysed over 21.7 million hashtags on Instagram, looking at the total number of hashtags for each location to reveal the most popular destinations in the UK to visit with a yacht.   

Dorset Echo: Charmouth beach

With over 490K Instagram posts, the Jurassic Coast spans 95 miles along the south coast which runs from Swanage to Lyme Regis and is famous for its fossil hunting beaches.   

Charmouth has recently topped a list of best beach destinations to visit in winter by the renowned travel guide the Lonely Planet.

The stretch stands as one of Britain's prime destinations, attracting millions of global visitors annually.

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's also acclaimed for its remarkable rocks and natural formations.

Dorset Echo: Durdle Door

Lulworth Cove is a small area along the Jurassic Coast. Despite being ranked number 10 on the list of locations, it’s still worth visiting.

The Cove offers sandy beaches and remarkable sights like Durdle Door, making it a favourite spot with over 130K social media posts.   

Speaking on the findings, an InsureMy  spokesperson said: “Sharing your holiday snaps on Instagram is a lot of fun, so it’s essential to know the most popular locations in UK so that you can visit the best sites on your next yachting holiday.    

“But, before planning any trip around this time of year it’s best to check the weather conditions as many places in UK are more susceptible to storms and fogs during autumn. Many marinas may also have reduced their opening times as well.  

“Ensuring that you have enough supplies for any emergencies that may occur and prioritizing safety in the water should be your top concern before setting off- and don’t forget to take pictures of the stunning sights you may discover on your journey.”
