Explore Minehead

Ideas to inspire you during your visit

Discover hidden treasure in Minehead!

Minehead's beaches and coastline.
The tide is in, the sea is glistening in the sun, the skies are blue - is it a bucket and spade kind of day, a day to fly a kite, or a great time to explore the area and go for a refreshing walk along the South West Coast Path?

With miles of beautiful coastline, a coastal path offering sweeping views across to South Wales and plenty of nearby places to explore in West Somerset, you are spoilt for choice, but you can easily pack it all in to a wonderful family day out.

Fun for all
A wealth of water sports, fishing trips, crazy golf, and amusement arcades – there’s lots of family fun to be had in Minehead!

Younger members of the family to entertain?  Fear not, there are indoor and outdoor attractions to keep them out of mischief all year long with attractions offering entertainment for children of all ages.

However, there is no bigger playground than the great outdoors. Exmoor is a wildlife haven and with the National Park on our doorstep, all the family can easily enjoy time together in the fresh air.  

On Minehead Harbour you will find fishing, boat trips and plenty of crab fishing.
Action and Adventure
If relaxing on the beach isn’t your thing, there are plenty of water and land-based activities to enjoy.

Bring your bike for a leisurely ride, play a round of golf, or perhaps try something new or a little different – Stand Up Paddle Boarding, the fastest growing water sport in the world.

If you fancy a challenge, take a walk up North Hill, climbing the steep narrow roads to enjoy panoramic views of the town and harbour.

With a huge selection of activities available, you will be itching to book another holiday to Minehead soon to try them all.
