Although known as a seaside resort, the area is significant in being part of the Somerset Levels a flat area of land between the Quantock and Mendip hills that has been reclaimed from the sea. This area has been recommended for World Heritage status.

Although the beach and mudflats are good fun for the family, obviously great care needs to be taken as there have been some tragedies in the past.
