Minehead - Terminus Beach

Minehead, Somerset

Minehead is one of Somerset's busiest holiday resorts with many amenities and a wide sand and shingle beach that faces North-to-North West and looks out across the Bristol Channel towards Wales. Sea defences have caused a lot of the sand here to be washed away.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Minehead) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
