Directions and Parking Details
From the A3052 (The main coast that runs from Exeter to Lyme Regis) take the Seaton turning and follow the signs for the seafront. Follow the sea road along the Esplanade with the sea on your right shoulder. Park in the center of the seafront by the ice cream kiosk

Parking on the seafront is limited and is difficult in the summer so it is necessary to get there early or to dive in the evening

The site is reached by carrying all of your gear down the beach - which gets crowded in the summer.
