St Audries Bay

St Audries Bay - Somerset

Set at the foot of the Quantock Hills is the wide bay of St Audries. A mix of flat pebbles, sand, shingle and rock this is one of the best beaches in the area. As with all the beaches on this stretch of coast the sand gets muddier towards the sea and the waters of the Bristol Channel are distinctly murky.

One of the nicest features of St Audries Bay are the two waterfalls which cascade down the cliffs along the back of the beach.

Access is via a path leading down from the local holiday park, which also provides parking and a shop. Whilst the path is well maintained it is still a bit of a hike down a fair number of steps to the beach.
