Seaton Beach is a wide, south-facing beach at the foot of the River Seaton valley near Looe in south-east Cornwall. Seaton’s steeply-sloping, sand and pebble beach is reasonably popular with families during peak summer months.
The nearby Seaton Valley Countryside Park – Cornwall’s first Green Flag Countryside Park and Local Nature Reserve – includes a garden, cycleways and woodland walks. The nature reserve is home to wildlife including otters and kingfishers.
The South West Coast Path, which provides splendid coastal walks around the coastline of Cornwall, links Seaton Beach to nearby beaches such as those at Millendreath and Downderry, the latter of which meets Seaton at low tide.
A car park is situated adjacent to the beach, from where the beach can easily be accessed (with disabled access). Facilities at Seaton Beach include a café, shop and toilets. There is no lifeguard patrol at the beach and extreme caution should be taken with the unpredictable currents. Seaton is a year-round dog-friendly beach.
