Helwell Bay

Helwell Bay

Helwell Bay is a wide beach of mostly rocks and some sand about ¼ mile east of Watchet harbour. A narrow lane (signposted Helwell Bay Caravan Park) leads to a small gravelled parking area, from where a path leads to steps down to the beach. The beach is backed by unstable cliffs, and the Caravan Park. Signs warn of mud. The sea along the coast here is a muddy brown colour, and very uninviting.

The West Somerset Railway's Doniford Halt station is at the eastern end of the beach. Dogs are allowed at all times.

Comment : This is not the sort of beach you would visit in order to bathe, but the rock strata in the cliffs and on the beach itself are fascinating and photogenic.
