One of Europe's longest sand beaches stretches from Burnham-On-Sea past the holiday villages of Berrow and Brean to the National Trust headland of Brean Down.
This seven mile beach is one of Somerset's finest attractions and with the world's second highest tidal range, the sands provide a wonderful location for beach horse riding.
Beach horse riding is allowed on Brean and Berrow beaches but not on Burnham-On-Sea's beach.
