Watchet Doniford

Watchet Doniford beach, Somerset

Watchet Doniford is a rock, mud and sand beach with numerous rocks and rock pools situated just to the east of Watchet itself.

Tides here are fast to rise and the mud can be thick, so extreme care should be taken. This is a good place to look for fossils and numerous rock pools will occupy younger members of your group.

The beach is best accessed from the nearby Doniford Halt Station (request stop) on the West Somerset Railway between Minehead and Bishop's Lydeard, Taunton.

Families wanting a place to sit and relax, tend to take the short trip eastwards, to St. Audrie's Bay, a long wide northwest-facing beach of rock and dark sand, with its own waterfall.

Geologists will enjoy inspecting the Jurassic cliffs at St. Audrie's and Doniford, whilst for ramblers, the walk from Doniford to Watchet to explore the town and harbour is very pleasant.
