The large sandy beach of Burnham-on-Sea is backed by an esplanade lined with hotels and guest houses and all the other usual tourist attractions and amenities. there are also several large caravan parks in Burnham on Sea and plenty for all the family (especially the kids) to do.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and dogs are alloed on the beach in certain areas, but restricted in others.

Burnham-on-Sea offers similar windsurfing and kitesurfing conditions to the other beaches in the area (Brean, Berrow and Weston-Super-Mare). As with the others, it can only be sailed for around 2 hours either side of high tide, after this the water goes out miles leaving huge tracts of mud between it and the shore.

SW winds are cross-onshore and produce good blasting conditions. Beginners can sail here in lighter winds. In NW winds it is possible to sail across to the small island of Gore Sand which is pretty cool.

The usual seaside amenities are all within easy reach in Burnham itself. Parking is available on the beach roadside and you rig on the beach itself.
