Freshwater Bay Beach

Freshwater Bay is open to the Channel and takes the brunt of the prevailing winds in the winter months.

At Freshwater you can see the rolling waves coming in from the Channel, crashing against the cliffs. In the summer months, however, the waters are calm and still and where the beach is pebbly, the waters are clear.

Families are attracted to exploring the cliffs and caves, kayaking, sunbathing and strolling along the promenade.

Freshwater Bay Beach has dog restrictions.
Dog restrictions in the summer season, check local signage.
