Burnham-on-Sea beach


Burnham-on-Sea is a traditional seaside 'town' resort with a wide and level Esplanade along the beach frontage which is great for families.  There is ample parking on the Esplanade and in car parks close to the beach.  The beach is staffed by trained Beach Wardens and Jetty Attendants from Easter to September and the RNLI Lifeguards monitor to the north of the Jetty during the peak summer period - early July to early September.

Burnham-on-Sea's bathing water has been classified as 'poor'. This means the level of harmful bacteria in the water can be high and beach visitors are advised not to swim at Burnham-on-Sea beach. Berrow and Brean beaches can be visited for swimming and paddling.

Burnham Beach also has a launching facility next to the Jetty for boat and water ski users. Permits can be purchased from the Beach Warden/Jetty Attendant on the production of appropriate insurances and the payment of the correct fee.

The Jetty fees are detailed in the Charges and Permits page.
