Best British Beaches: St. Bees Beach

Stretching out below the dramatic headland of St Bees Head is a mile-long sand and pebble beach. From South Head to Seamill lane, St Bees beach consists of a shingle bank which slopes down to an expanse of golden sand. The sand here is exposed at most states of tide except for a couple of hours either side of high tide...

At the northern end of the beach is a promenade that extends towards the red sandstone cliffs in the central section of the beach. Beyond these the beach is backed by St Bees Golf Club.

There is a RSPB nature reserve on St Bees Head which is home to a range of seabirds including guillemots, kittiwakes, fulmars and razorbills. You can also spot peregrines and ravens above the red sandstone cliffs.
