Weston-super-Mare Beach

Weston-superMare Beach is a 2-mile long beach in Somerset. It has everything you would expect from an archetypal English seaside resort – Donkey rides, amusements, ice cream parlours, fish and chip shops, Punch and Judy shows, and a vast amounts of golden sand.

The beach is very popular during the summer months, with travellers flocking to the main beach that runs south of the Grand Pier. If you’re looking to sunbathe, build sandcastles, cool yourself down with an ice-cream and run around with the kids, then you couldn’t ask for anything more. The Uphill Sands section of the beach is reserved for kitesurfing and other water sports.

With the extreme tidal range of the bristol channel, it’s important to check the tide before planning a beach visit, especially if you intent on swimming. At high tide the water comes all the way up to the peer, and at low tide a large expanse of dangerous mud flats are exposed.

Dogs are banned from the section of the beach between the Grand Pier and the Royal Sands from May 1st – Sept 30th. There is disabled access and toilets available for those who need them.
