Wells beach

The Beach

Book Your Holiday

Following requests from our customers as from 2013 all our caravan holiday homes and lodges will be no smoking.

At low water, Wells beach has huge open views and mile upon mile of sands and shallow channels to enjoy. When the tide comes in, the beach is transformed into a harbour, with the entrance channel suddenly busy with visiting yachts, fishing boats setting out for the day or returning with their catch, local small boats going out to fish as well as clouds of small sailing boats racing or cruising within the harbour.

The Beach Café is the best place to enjoy al fresco food or if the weather is a little cooler warm up with a hot drink by the wood burning stove or just purchase some seaside mementos from the many on offer.  Find out more about the Beach Café.

At the eastern edge of the beach, you’ll find Wells RNLI lifeboat station which houses both an all-weather lifeboat and a small, fast inshore lifeboat. The beach is also watched during the peak season by RNLI lifegaurds and by volunteers at the Coastwatch lookout. If you fancy a swim, an area in front of the main beach away from moving boats is marked off by yellow buoys.

For safety, always remember to check tide times and be sure to be returned to the beach-side of the main channel when the warning siren sounds or around four hours before high water. Please see signs and other notices posted at the beach entrance for more information.

Please note that dogs are not permitted on the first 200 yards of beach from the main entrance but there’s no restriction from the pinewoods entrances.
