Seaton beach, Devon

Seaton beach lies on the South coast of Devon, just about four miles from the border with Dorset.

South facing, Seaton is a mile long crescent of pebbles, shingle and coarse red sand stretching from Beer Head to Haven Cliff near Axmouth. The beach, part of the East Devon and Dorset Jurassic Coast is also within an area of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

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.

There is limited parking just behind the beach and safety equipment is also located here.
