St Bees Beach

The bay at St. Bees is a long stretch of sand split into two.

At the north end, you have St Bees Main Beach which has facilities including parking, toilets, a cafe, a beach shop, a children’s play area and a promenade.

At the south end, you have Seamill Beach which has no facilities other than a small car park.

When the tide is out you can walk the whole stretch of red sand, if the tide is in then you can still move between the two stretches of the beach by using the cliff path.
