Nethertown beach is mainly shingle, with a broad strip of sand exposed at low-tide. Behind the beach are grassy dunes through which runs the single-track coastal railway line. Between the railway track and the beach are a scattering of chalets and beach bungalows.
From the beach there are views over the Irish Sea and Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant to the south. The fells of the Lake District can be seen in the distance. The west-facing beach gets some good sunsets.
During the Second World War, the nearby village of Nethertown was home to an anti-aircraft training camp.
There are a number of caravan parks along this stretch of the coast.
