​American Man Baffled By British Beach Asks ‘What The Hell Is This?’

​American Man Baffled By British Beach Asks ‘What The Hell Is This?’

A baffled American man documented his 'horrible' day out at a British beach, hilariously asking: "What the hell is this?" Watch his terrible day trip here:


TikToker Nick Alexander (@mr.miami_uk) has been documenting life in the UK after moving over to Wolverhampton from Miami, Florida.

But while he's been enjoying the joys of massive fry-ups and summery garden parties, it seems he wasn't quite so impressed by the beach offering across the pond.


You see, there may be stunning popular beaches across Britain, but Nick decided to go to Weston-super-Mare in the South West, which is known less for its golden sands and glorious turquoise sea as it is for its... mud and brown, sludgy water.

On a good day, it's a nice enough spot if you're after some fish and chips and a whizz around the arcades, but it's not exactly ideal for a refreshing dip - especially when it's low tide.

In a video, Nick said: "Today I tried to go swimming in a British beach and it didn't work out so well.


"[...] It's just horrible, what the hell is this?"

He then panned around to the muddy vista behind him, looking less than happy.

In another clip, Nick explained that he and his family had decided to go to the beach for the day.

He continued: "We thought it was gonna be an easy walk. Everybody was vibing, and then I pulled up on some God d*** mud.


"The beach was like 20 miles away.

"Now, I don't know who decided to call it a beach, but where I come from, beaches don't look like this.

"Overall, it ended up being an absolutely s*** day.


"I didn't get to go swimming, I lost my wallet, the sun started to make people act funny.

"It just wasn't for me."

Things appeared to brighten up a little bit when Nick found Weston-Super-Mare's fairground, and he filmed himself enjoying a ride on a roller coaster.

"The thing about these little roller coasters is you feel like you're going to die the entire time because you might just fall off," Nick said.

Well, it's a slight improvement on the mud... Right?

The videos of Nick's big day out went viral on TikTok as he left fellow users in stitches, racking up more than 100,000 views and 10,000 likes on one clip alone.

One person commented: "I actually laughed out loud this is so accurate."

Someone else said: "Can only imagine how underwhelming this must be. We love our beaches in the UK."

Others recommended the likes of Bournemouth or Woolacombe, with Nick saying in a later update that he wanted to try Devon or Cornwall instead next time.
