Seaton beach, Cornwall

Seaton Beach lies on the south coast of Cornwall about four miles east of Looe. Seaton is a wide south-facing beach at the end of the valley of the River Seaton. The beach is popular with families who may also make use of the nearby Seaton Valley Countryside Park. Seaton Valley was Cornwall’s first Green Flag Countryside Park and Local Nature Reserve and includes a sensory garden, cycleways and walks in the woodland. The Reserve is home to a large range of wildlife from butterflies, dragonflies and other insects right up to kingfishers and even otters.

Seaton along with most other beaches of South East Cornwall has a beach consisting of quite coarse yellow-grey sand and is popular for sailing, surfing and shore fishing.

There is a large car park behind the beach and a good range of facilities. There is no lifeguard cover however so care should be taken not to swim too far out as the sea currents can be unpredictable.

Dogs are welcome all year round.
