Lydstep Haven beach is about ½ mile long and dominated by the private holiday park behind the beach. A (free) National Trust car park is located at Lydstep Headland, which can be reached by turning off the A4139 at Lydstep village onto a byway signposted as a no-through road. Approximately 300 yards along this track, a turning on the right leads to the car park at the top of the hill.
The shore is of sand and pebbles, backed with a sea-defence wall of rocks and flanked by limestone cliffs. Caves on the north side can be explored at low tide. Access to the shore is down a steep slipway. Facilities include toilets, drinking water and a small shop. In summer, the northern half of the beach has a designated swimming zone and a dog ban operates on this section from 1st May to 30th September.
