Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



Bye-bye to beach safety staff

With nights drawing in and cooler weather, the beach safety staff at Burnham-on-Sea and Berrow Beaches have now finished for the season. 

There will be no vehicular access or parking on Berrow Beach from the beginning of October, as there will be no safety staff to help any visitorswho might encounter difficulties from parking on the sand or soft mud.

A spokesman for the Council said: “We are sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by the closure of Berrow Beach access gate, but it is possible to walk to the beach via footpaths from the road. There is also free parking at the nearby Berrow Dunes Nature Reserve.  The vehicle access will be re-opened at the beginning of April 2022, in good time for Easter”

Visitors are reminded that if they get into trouble on the beach, they should phone 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
