A guy who is used to the beautiful sandy beaches of Miami, Florida, was in for a huge disappointment when he visited the not-so-sandy shores of a beach in the United Kingdom.
Nick Alexander, a.k.a. known as TikTok user @mrmiami_uk, is an American native who recently relocated to Wolverhampton—a city in West Midlands, England.
His TikTok channel, which has over 118K followers, focuses on the American transplant and his cultural experiences in the U.K.
A couple of weeks ago, Alexander and his friends traveled the roughly two hour-plus drive to Weston-super-Mare for a day by the seaside.
Unfortunately, due to his ill-timed arrival with the tide all the way out, his visit wound up being a muddy mess.

Is this a beach?? #britishbeach #fail #mudside #seaside
"TikTok, today I tried to go swimming at a British beach, and it didn't work out so well," he said in the clip that was sarcastically captioned with:
"Is this a beach?"
Alexander turned the camera from himself to the muddy landscape stretching out as far as the eye could see before touching water.
He fumed, "What the hell is this??"
TikTokers confirmed Weston-super-Mare is locally known as "Weston Super Mud," and that it is an undesirable beach destination.
In a followup video, he detailed the horrors awaiting him by the seaside.
He wrote in the caption:
"Someone needs to take me to a real U.K. Beach Please!!"

Someone needs to take me to a real U.K. Beach Please!! #britishbeach #wow #mrmiamiuk #badday #mud #westernsupermare #neveragain #beach #reststop #fyp
"We thought it was gonna be an easy walk," he said as he plodded across the swampy terrain and lamented the beach was "like 20 miles away."
He continued to grumble:
"Now I don't know who decided to call this place a beach but where I come from beaches don't look like this."
Things went from bad to worse.
"Overall it ended up being an absolutely sh*t day. I didn't get to go swimming, I lost my wallet in Weston-super-Mare."
"It just wasn't for me," he concluded, as he turned the camera back on himself and revealed his look of complete dissatisfaction.
This clip of him giving the harshest thumbs down review of Weston-super-nightMare received over 19.8K likes.
Locals persuaded him to give British beaches another try by recommending he visit more acceptable locations—like Devon, North Wales, and Cornwall.
Fortunately, all was not lost.
Alexander and his crew managed to turn their frown upside with a visit to a local fair, which wound up being a "highlight of the day."
The Fair was the highlight of the day!! I need friends in Cornwall or Devon ASAP!! #mrmiamiuk #pov #rollercoaster #westonsupermare #fypシ
He remained determined not to give up on British beaches after reading all the commentors' suggestions.
"I need friends in Cornwall or Devon ASAP!!" he wrote in the last clip's caption.
It looks like his viral status has him hooked up and good to go.
