Meanwhile, Seaford in East Sussex has seen the biggest annual increase in buyer searches of any place on the coast, with searches up 104% over the past 12 months.

Tim Bannister, director of property data at Rightmove, said: “Relocating to a coastal area is a dream move for many home-hunters and it is safe to say that lockdown has intensified that desire to live beside the sea for many people.

“Properties in seaside towns usually come at a premium, but what is fascinating about this list of coastal price hotspots is that there is a relatively wide range of price points.

“Mumbles has always been a popular destination among British holidaymakers and therefore it stands to reason that home-hunters would seek it out for their year-round fix of sand and sea.”
