Season: winter

Bright sunshine and a rising, gentle tide was the setting for this winter re-visit to Seaton beach. There couldn’t have been a more stark contrast to the previous spring scene, when the beach cafe had been heavily damaged by the winter storms.  It was now fully repaired and Seaton was showing its benign face. The river ran strongly to the sea, carving the beach in half and people were walking towards West Looe from here, or along to Downderry in the east.

There are excellent facilities for the visitor at South East Cornwall’s Seaton beach, including beach-side parking and a beach café, which is being renovated after its pounding during the recent storms.  The road and shops are next to the beach, which is popular with local dog walkers, who have access all year round.  There’s also an invigorating walk to the east from here, taking in Downderry beach and leading you right round to Rame Head and beyond, via Whitsand Bay.

    For me, the beach is a place to escape everyday life and experience the power and beauty of nature. Whether I’m in the mood for quiet contemplation, a vigorous walk or just some relaxing fun, it stimulates the senses and reminds me what’s important.
