Berrow South is the southern section of Berrow Flats near Weston-super-Mare in North Somerset. The beach is located west of the village and consists of a flat sandy beach backed by dunes.
Berrow Flats is a long stretch of sand and mudflats running from Brean Down in the north to Burnham-on-Sea in the south.
The area is popular with walkers, anglers and sports enthusiasts, with activities including horse riding and windsurfing. Fishing is permitted three hours a day either side of high tide.
There is limited parking available at the beach, but for longer stays it is best to park at Brean.
When the tide recedes it reveals the wreck of a ship - the SS Nornen, a Norwegian barque. It ran aground on Berrow mud flats in March 1897.
To the north of Berrow, near Unity Farm, the dunes and marshland attracts large numbers of seabirds.
