Burnham-on-Sea - Jetty Beach

Burnham Jetty North is on the Somerset coast overlooking the Bristol Channel. It is a sand and mud beach resort, approximately 2.2 kilometres wide and backed by a sea defence wall. 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 rivers Brue and Parrett both flow into the Bristol Channel just south of the bathing water.

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.
