Brean Beach

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.

At low tide a wide exposure of soft sand and mud is exposed leading to the water’s edge, although, this can be very dangerous to approach the water at low tide and visitors should take note of the warning notices about the dangers of mud.

Facilities include car park that includes spaces on the beach, food and warden patrol in the summer.

Horse riding is also allowed.

We have no current information on dog restrictions for Brean Beach.
