Greenaleigh Sand Beach

Greenaleigh Sand is a secluded stretch of beach around 1.5 miles west of Minehead harbour. Towards low tide it lives up to its name and there is a fairly wide area of sand. This backs onto small boulders and wooded cliffs and fields.
Given that the beach is only really accessible after a fair walk it is generally empty. The obvious route is from Minehead via the South West Coast Path but there is also a route down from Moor Wood via Greenaleigh Farm.
