Brenton-on-Sea is great for walking and sunbathing and is popular with paragliders. A big rock formation, castle Rock, is a favourite fishing spot for locals. Swimming is dangerous because of rip currents.

Brenton on Sea is so picturesque, with gorgeous little bays and coves and secluded beaches. Some are not too easy to access, but taken slowly, they are worth the effort. Away from the madding crowd certainly describes this stunning area.

Fantastic beautiful beach at the bottom of a cliff walk, we were here for a magical wedding ceremony, which was the best that I have ever been to. Beautiful setting.

Ocean, coffee and fresh air... What more do you need? A very quaint beach, with a stunning view, we couldn't stay away!! Being a bit far out from our Cottage that we stayed at, we made it a trip to go to the beach. Enjoying coffee and a stunning view, we stayed here for hours.

The drive up to the beach over the hills were quite steep but once you reach it, it was all worth the drive. This beach is unspoiled, clean, and good for any activities.

Came here not knowing what we would find and were rewarded with a walk along the spectacular unspoiled sand of this wonderful beach with ocean breakers providing the soundtrack. Walked for about two miles and met one lady walking her dog!

Fantastic beach with a lovely posh cafe at the car park. A must go place for an afternoon if you can't afford a chalet

Awesome views! Great beach! Lovely place to go for a long walk. Take the path less travelled and walk away from the beach towards the rocks ti view the most spectacular rock formations and some wildlife. Awesome sunrise and sunset photo opportunities! Quite beach. Remeber to take water when taking walks, as one often forgets how far you can walk... More

A pleasure to walk on this lovely beach and if very energetic onto Buffalo Bay, also to have something to eat at Blue at Brenton facing the Ocean

You have to walk a way down steps to the beach and do not expect hawkers but if you want to take your own refreshments and revel In the beauty of the beach and swim in the sea then this is for you. When you have finished your day there is a welcome pub at the top of the steps
