Somerset Beaches

A guide to Somerset's best beaches with maps, photo's and directions.

A few of Somerset's beaches have treacherous mudflats which are only revealed at low tide, this is mainly because Somerset's coast faces the Bristol Channel, when the tide goes out here it goes out a long, long way! Most beaches with mud flats have warning signs but visitors should take care not to walk on the mud how ever tempting to reach the sea.

Beach goers should also beware that there is a strong tidal range in the region and should take care to avoid being cut off.
