Tell us what you think about Minehead - Terminus Beach

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.
