    Portishead Beach Information

    Portishead beach is located on the north Somerset coast within the Severn Estuary and is one of the closest beaches to Bristol at just 5 miles.

    The beach is an estuary beach and so you don’t really get sand, much more mud and rocky beach backed by some grass and salt marsh, adjacent to the beach is a 100-year-old artificial lake and a small park. On a clear day, you get some good views over to the south Wales coast. For sand you will need to head down the coast to the likes of Weston-Super-Mare.

    Although we list this beach as Portishead beach after the town it is also known as Kilkenny Bay or Woodhill Bay.

    Facilities at the beach include a car park and also parking on the road, lido, cafes, toilets at the car park and Lido, either end of the beach.

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