Plan A Day Out At The Seaside In Bristol

Apr 25,2014 BY

If it’s a lovely summer’s day then there isn’t much that beats the entertainment and relaxation that comes with a day out at the seaside and luckily if you live in Bristol then there are several nearby locations you can visit for a fantastic day out with all the family.

Here is a little insight into some of the fantastic beaches on offer nearby the city of Bristol and surrounding areas….

Weston-super Mare
Weston-super Mare is home to one of the UK’s longest and most natural beaches with miles of golden sand, there are several yearly events that take place on this beach including the T4 festival, Enduro which is fantastic to watch as the beaches transform into a race track and several sand sculpting competitions which can get the whole family involved.

Located in Somerset, Berrow beach is just a few miles north of Burnham on Sea, and due to the beach location it isn’t as popular with tourists, so you often find it is quiet and more relaxing than the slightly larger beaches like Weston-super Mare. There are tons of things that you can do here including horse riding and wind surfing, and just to top it off there is also a scenic view of the local marshland so when the tide goes out you can see the bones of an old sunken ship.

Burnham On Sea
This particular beach is very large and has three different sections, the main, south and the north beach. The main beach is a sandy beach with lots of different activities including donkey rides and jet skis. The north part of the beach is more popular for activities like boating and it also has more shops and cafés. The south part of the beach offers more of a pebbled surface and is excellent for watching boats on a hot summer’s day.

If you are travelling to the beach with friends and family then you may need to organise a suitable transport.
