Brean Down Beach

Brean Down beach is a superb stretch of beach with firm sand and views of Brean Down.

At low tide a wide exposure of soft sand and mud is exposed leading to the water’s edge.  Tide can rise fast near Brean Down and it is also dangerous to approach the water at low tide due to mud. Visitors should take note of the warning notices and climbing is not allowed.

Horse riding is allowed on this beach.

Vehicles can park on the beach during the day in designated areas or you can park your car at the National Trust car park besides Brean Down.
