Burnham-on-sea is blessed with one of the largest beaches in the Westcountry. It stretches for seven miles past the town and on to the villages of Berrow and Brean Sands. At low tide the beach is wide and is often used for sand yachting and kite flying. 




The tidal range is one of the largest in the world and the tide moves very fast as a consequence of this - it is advisable to check on the tide times before venturing too far. There is a wide range of accommodation available in the town and plenty of cafes and restaurants.
