There is a pay and display car park on beach road, but it fills up very quickly in the summer months, usually by 10:00am it is full and you will be re-directed to the overspill carpark in Freeman Street, you can then either walk which takes about 40 minutes or take the steam train, there are also other additional car parks in Wells town and it is approx 1 mile from here to the beach.

From the Car Park on Beach Road - Approximately a 10 Minute Walk

You can either head through the pinewoods, walk to the end of the car park, go past the pond on your left walking parallel to the beach to the last set of steps, adjacent to the toilet block, from here you can access the beach (note: drinking water tap is just at the bottom of these steps) This takes you out at hut 138 so either head left or right depending on hut number you have booked.

Or from the car park head up the steps opposite the large red bins straight onto the beach. This will take you out at hut 34 so either turn left or right depending on your hut number.

From the Town Centre - Approximately a 45 Minute Walk​

There are multiple car parks in Wells and if you fancy walking to the beach you can walk on the footpath starting from the Quay. It is just under a mile. There is also the Wells harbour train that runs from wells town into the pinewoods holiday park.

Please note when the car park at the beach is full you will be re-directed to the overspill car park on freeman street which means you will have to walk from the Quay.
