Reviewed 1 October 2017 via mobile

Our first visit here whilst staying in the area. Drove down where parking is very limited but it was early evening so no problem. Tide was low so we were able to have a lovely walk along the beach. Definitely need to check tide times, especially if you're doing the coast path as you have to cross the river via a sand bank. Lots of birds including swans and a heron. The rooks were floating and all in all a perfect walk. If you have children there's lots of natural things to do and safe for paddling in certain areas. There are no facilities ie toilets but lots of woodland cover for emergencies!! I could imagine on a sunny day you could spend the day here with a nice picnic. Our dogs thought they were in heaven.

This is a beach with no facilities. No cafe or toilets. Parking is on the edge of the road so not really suitable for wide vehicles. Lovely views out to sea and Mothecombe beach

Wonwell and Coastguards lie on the Flete Estate on the Erme Estuary. At low tide there are miles of sand to walk on and you can 'wade' across up to mid tide. Special place!!

Wonwell is my favourite beach to visit after we discovered it a few years ago through a friend. It is difficult to get to and there's very limited on road parking, if you visit at the wrong time and there's no space, you'll be turning back round! There's no toilets or cafe but the gorgeous scenery makes up for it. There's so much space to enjoy for all, our dog loves Wonwell and starts crying as we drive down the tiny lane to get there as he knows where he's going. Wonwell will always hold a big place in my heart as my husband proposed to me on the beach.
