Blue Anchor West Beach Weather and Tides

Blue Anchor is on the coast of Somerset overlooking the Bristol Channel. The beach is shingle and sand, and the water has a naturally cloudy colour. The beach has a shallow slope and a very large tidal range so that it can be up to half a kilometre to the sea at low tide. The Pill River and Carhampton Stream cross the beach.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. 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.
