"I don’t know who decided to call this a beach – but where I come from beaches don’t look like this.”

A less-than-impressive trip to the UK seaside has ended up with a series of popular social media videos for one US-born traveller.
Nick Alexander, aka Mr Miami UK, had travelled with friends to Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset – a famously long beach that is covered in thick mud.
Alexander, who expected the white sands of Miami, Florida where he’s from, documented his unhappy experience on video-sharing app TikTok. Those videos, one of which is entitled Weston Super Mud – Don’t Go There have gone viral, racking up more than 100,000 views and thousands of likes.
In one of the videos, Alexander said: “I dont know who decided to call this a beach but where I come from beaches dont look like this.
Nick Alexander was unimpressed with the beach at Weston-Super-Mare.

In another video, he commented: Today I tried to go swimming in a British beach and it didnt work out so well.
Its just horrible. What the hell is this?
Under his first video on TikTok account @mr.miami_uk (language warning on some videos), he started receiving comments referring to the seaside town as “Weston-Super-Mud”.
His mother is from the UK and moved to Miami, where he was born. He moved back to study International Business Management at Wolverhampton University.
The student said: “I’m from Miami so I’ve been getting some flack in the comments saying I should’ve checked the tide, I didn’t know water could go away!
“I don’t know who checked when I was a kid I’ve never shown up to the beach and the water was four miles away – from now on I’ll be checking the tide.”
