Swimming is good here but please beware strong currents at the eastern end near Axmouth.
There are numerous facilities and amenities close by to please all types of beach visitor and some excellent views west towards Beer Head or east towards Dorset and Lyme Regis.
The Seaton tramway tourist attraction through the valley of the River Axe is an experience not to be missed.
