Bigbury on Sea Beach

Bigbury on Sea Beach is a popular family destination, with easy access and good parking. Just across the water is Burgh Island, where Agatha Christie and Noel Coward once kicked up their heels. You can visit the island during the summer courtesy of a special ‘sea tractor’.

Help for Disabled

The Venus Cafe, just below the car park at Bigbury-on-Sea, has a beach wheelchair that can be borrowed free of charge. We were able to wheel my mother over to Burgh Island.
The slopes going down to the beach are quite steep. It's not so bad going down, but you need to be quite strong to push the wheelchair back up!

Large sandy beach when the tide is out. Interesting rock formations around towards the Avon estuary.

Lovely Sandy Beach

A large sandy beach and great for surfing. Children can play.You can either walk across to Burgh Island or take the sea tractor when the tide covers the causeway.
