Owner description: 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.

“Great Beach”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

A wonderful beach. Great facilities with showers and sitting areas so you can clean the sand before putting on your shoes. Good walkways down to the beach and lifeguard patrolled so you feel safe in the water. A nice bar/restaurant close to the car park. Great food good drinks and a nice family atmosphere. Great sunday brunch with music.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

The most beautiful bay, you climb down the steps and find you cannot swim because of the currents, big disappointment. So it is for walkers and sunworshipers only!!!

“Spectacular empty wild beach”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

It felt like this place hadn't changed for 1000 years. No shops, nor retail. Just a huge empty stunning location. Wow.

“Fantastic beach!!! Must go!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Perfect beach, blue and green super clear water. Great to spend the day or just have a walk on the beach. There are restrooms and showers. No bars o restaurants near by, so take something to drink/eat if you are planning to stay for long.
