Middle Hope Beach

Middle Hope Beach - Somerset

Just north of Weston-Super-Mare is the peninsula of Sand Point - a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a world away from the donkey rides and pier. To the south is Sand Bay whilst on the northern side is the little sand and shingle cove of Middle Hope.

The beach here is backed by farm land and faces into the Bristol Channel with views across to Wales. Murky water and the muddy low tide sand will probably be enough to put most off the idea of swimming. If not the strong tidal currents should do.
