Helwell Bay - Somerset

Backing onto the Doniford Halt station of the West Somerset Railway and overlooked by the Quantock Hills there is no arguing that Hellwell Bay has a lovely setting.

Unfortunately the beach itself doesn\'t really live up to this. Mostly rock there is a patch of muddy sand to the eastern end of the beach. With warnings of quicksand it is caution is advised. The muddy brown sea here is similarly unappealing and potentially dangerous as the tide moves.
