With a recommendation from the Good Beach Guide, Cornwall’s Seaton Beach sits right at the beginning of the River Seaton Valley. With plenty of space for families to enjoy a day on the pebbles and a south-facing position, Seaton Beach is also served by some convenient amenities that make it easy to spend a whole day on it.
Let’s start with the all-important facilities – you’ll find a café and a shop nearby, toilets, parking and a bar. There’s a slipway for the sailors amongst you, and it’s also a popular spot for shore fishing. The water quality’s officially high, so if you have little ones who like to get in and make a splash this is the place to do it, and this is a nice beach for younger children who just want to paddle.
If you fancy stretching your legs while you’re in the area you can wander along the promenade to Downderry Beach from Seaton, and if you time your stroll for when the tide’s in you’ll see the local anglers seeing what they can catch.
