The beach at Wells next the Sea was yet another revelation for us. There is a large car-park within minutes of the beach (at a cost of £8 per day), or you could park up by the town and either walk up (probably a 15/20 minute walk) or take the 10 1/4 guage harbour railway at a cost of £3 per adult and £2 per child.
We parked in the main car park which has plentiful facilities, including a large toilet block, taps for cleaning feet etc. a lovely café and a beach shop (this is a Joules..!)
We walked out of the front of the car park to the beach and found a nice spot. The only issue we had is that there is a large strip of mud (looks like sand…) between the top of the beach and the water. HOWEVER, we were later told that we should have accessed the beach from the back of the car park, and we would not have experienced this.
The highlight of our day (we actually spent a few hours relaxing here on a very hot day in June 2017) was seeing 4 seals emerge from the water to lay on a sandbank for a couple of hours 🙂
The other feature that I just have to note is the beautiful beach huts up on stilts 🙂
You won’t be disappointed if you visit this beach!
