The beach at Wells-next-the-sea is an awarding winning beach and popular among dog walkers.

Restrictions – Dogs are allowed on the beach at Wells all year round BUT there are some restrictions notably at the main entrance and near to the many beach huts that adorn the beach dogs are not allowed.

Dog owners are advised to enter the beach via the pinewood forested area to the left of the main entrance (this woodland area is itself a great place to walk).

    Yes. Just yes. My children love the sand, making pictures with the pebbles, looking for the small fish and looking out for seals. Time easily slips away at this beautiful beach. The nearest car park is expensive (card and cash accepted) but ensure you keep an eye on the time! I was 3 minutes over and got a parking ticket in the post a few weeks later. Gutted, but I've learned that £10 for 4 hours isn't enough. There are plenty of fish and chips, nice pubs and restaurants, shops, gift and sweet shops. Crab fishing, walks, camping and a caravan site RIGHT down the hill from the beach. It's beautiful. Family and friend favourite ❤ Thank you so much to my friend who took me here!

    Despite it being cloudy, wells beach is a lovely sand beach. On our visit there was a seal sunbathing! Being mindful however it's a good walk to the town centre. To park get there early to avoid disappointment. There are toilets and a cafe next to the beach, but if you find yourself a distance away, you might get caught short. Very safe beach, with lots of guidance and signs for safety. Boats sail through regularly. Nice day out

    Fantastic beach, shallow water so great for kids. Sand castle building and ice creams. Car park close to the beach is reasonable and there is a nice cafe for when you come off the beach. Might see seals as well if you are lucky. Worth buying a crabbing net as there are lots all around the coast, hours of fun.

    I've been going here since I was a young child and I'm now fortunate enough to take my own children here. The beach is excellent although serious attention must be paid to the tides, which move very quickly due to the shallow beaches. Unfortunately the train has now gone, which is a real shame but the walk back into town is nice anyway. Some decent fish and chips are available, along with some other traditional British seaside attractions. Wells is a good base for loads of other attractions nearby and would recommend.

    Lovely area with plenty to do and see. A pretty quay with seaside shops, eateries etc and lots of crabbing going on. You can walk from here (if you're feeling energetic) or drive to the beach, or visit the beautiful expansive dog friendly beach hut lined sandy beach, after a short walk through pine wood. A tip for the less mobile, don't take the first or second steps up to the beach, take the next which is a ramp, with handy toilets right there. My dog loved playing in the sand pools as the tide was way out on our visit. Handy cafe right by the car park, albeit a tad expensive. But hey, to be expected on holiday. Everything well organised. Well worth a visit
