Brean beach is a 7-mile stretch of sand and mud flats that runs all the way to Burnham-on-Sea. The impressive size makes it one of the longest areas of sand in Europe, and at low tide a vast area of mud flats is exposed.
The beach is favoured by beach sports enthusiasts, walkers, and dog walkers, due to there being no seasonal ban for dogs. The facilities include a beach cafe, toilets and ample parking, with it possible to park on the beach itself in designated areas! There is no lifeguard service in operation, so extra should be taken when enjoying any water sports.
If you have a kite buggy, this is arguably the best beach you’re going to find, with some able to reach speeds of 40mph!
From the beach, Brean Down dominates the skyline. This 97 metre high headland stretches out into the sea, forming a natural pier. The more energetic may enjoy climbing up the down and will be rewarded with excellent views over the Bristol Channel and the Somerset Levels.
