Brean beach is part of a six mile length of beach great for families with sand dunes and firm sand. This is the second longest stretch of sand in Europe and space is not a problem.

Facilities include car park that includes spaces on the beach, food and warden patrol in the summer.
Horse riding is also allowed.
