Blue Anchor beach is just under a mile long with a view of Minehead Bay. The beach is a mix of sand and shingle and is great for finding fossils.
This stretch of coast between Blue Anchor and Lilstock is a 742.8 hectare geological Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). If you want a walk there is a sand/gravel path to Dunster and Minehead at the top of the beach.
At high tide the promenade is a popular place with sea anglers.
The beach is backed by a promenade and you have parking and toilets.
Blue Anchor Beach allows dogs.
