Cold water showers are free to use and are located adjacent to the Shore Road beach huts, outside the public conveniences.

The nearest public conveniences for the Spa and Spa Retreat beach huts are at Battlegate, along Shore Road, and the closest drinking water tap is on Sandpit field (just 2 minutes walk from these huts).

Part of Shore Road (from The Mowlem to Victoria Avenue junction) is currently closed all year round to traffic, so it is a safe environment for children and families.

Beach hut keys can be collected from 10:00 hours (09:00 hours on Saturdays & Sundays) and returned by 22:00 hours at the end of the hire period. Hire periods generally run from Saturday to Friday.


All Shore Road beach huts have wide doors and allow access for wheelchair users. There are 5 huts (15-19) which have even wider doors and a lower countertop for increased accessibility. Huts 1-14 can only be accessed via steps, but all other huts are fully accessible.

Spa and Spa Retreat beach huts can be accessed from three different points via a small number of steps. However, there is a path from Shore Road without any steps, which leads up to the Spa Retreats area. Please ask us for further advice regarding accessibility to these huts.
