JMW Photography - Fun on the Seafront

Fun on the seafront 

The beach is ideal for watersports such as swimming, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and rafting. 

Channel Adventure  offers a range of fantastic, fun, family activities from the seafront. Don’t forget to explore the Minehead Maritime Mile - you’ll also need to download the fun heritage trail quiz before you head off. 


You can also make the most of your seaside holiday by grabbing a bucket and spade for some epic sandcastle creations or take along a net for a spot of rock pooling or crab fishing. Dip your toes into the sea for a paddle or make the most of the large stretch of sandy beach to fly a kite, play frisbee or cricket.
