Visit Weston-super-Mare donkey beach Grand Pier sunny sand


Weston-super-Mare is a seaside resort, located on the Bristol Channel coast at the gateway to the South West of England and boasts one of the largest naturally occurring beaches in the UK; it is a long, sandy beach that has a high tidal range.

Many events are held on Weston-super-Mare beach and seafront throughout the year.

In addition to the sand and sea, Weston-super-Mare beach has many traditional seaside occupations to offer: donkey rides, children's rides, the Grand Pier and The Bay Cafe, located at the former iconic Tropicana Lido.

Weston has lots of places to grab a traditional seaside fish & chips, candy floss, donuts and ice-cream. But there are many restaurants offering a variety of international cuisine and traditional fare is right along the seafront and in the town centre - just a five minute walk from the seafront.

There are also many beach front shops that sell postcards, kites, buckets and spades all well positioned along the clean and tidy promenade. Please consider beach pollution by taking unwanted buckets and spades, beach toys and of course your litter away with you. 

Live tide times can be found here: https://www.visit-westonsupermare.com/visitor-info/tide-times.

Please note, DO NOT try to cross to any land mass and/or chase the tide line and enter into the mud. Please adhere to all warning signs.
