Seagrove Bay Beach will remind you of holidays from days gone by. The beach is gently sloping and has clear waters.
Seagrove Bay sits between Seaview beach and Priory Bay. The beach is a gently sloping expanse of golden sands and has clear waters making it popular for a whole range of beach activities and water sports. There is a slipway running down into the sea which is a regular launching platform for boats.
Roughly at the centre is a public slipway. To the south of the slipway is a curved concrete seawall protecting the shoreline, properties and boathouses. In addition, there are four 30m groynes made of rock piles running out perpendicularly from the seawall into the bay.
Each one has a post with a red can marking its seaward end. The beach between the groynes is predominantly sand but is completely covered at high water.
At the southernmost end of the bay is a wooden walkway which gives access from the end of the seawall to Horestone Point and Priory Bay beyond even during the high tide. To the north of the slipway is a straight pebble beach. Further coastal protection measures are planned for this section if they can be justified environmentally and financially.
The beach itself disappears at high tide, so make sure you check the tide times beforehand.
There are toilet facilities at the bottom of the lane which leads down to the beach. Parking at the back of the beach is limited so you are best advised to park in Seaview and walk round to the beach.
