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.

What a charming, unexpected place! First, you have to park and walk - it's not a long walk around the village and very peaceful. Start at the old Anglican church, wander along the lanes down to the water'd edge and back - thoroughly delightful.

An incredibly beautiful beach that you can walk for miles on. Super soft sand, rock pools and the hugest sky you've ever been under. Hardly any one there even though it was half term.
