Overview

Brenton-on-Sea is great for walking and sunbathing and is popular with paragliders. A big rock formation, castle Rock, is a favourite fishing spot for locals. Swimming is dangerous because of rip currents.

Brenton On Sea in the evening is stunning - there is a magical feel to a walk along the beach at sunset. Interesting birds, amazing rock erosion and plenty of seats to sit up on the cliff and enjoy the view.
