A great coastal walk from the northern tip of the marina down to the old town Clevedon. It’s easy going with great views and a couple of watering holes on the way. If the legs are hurting get the bus back, easy.
The Lido is a favourite spot for a swim and sunbath. 10 mins walk from the marina you will find the Lido on the lake grounds opposite the boating pond and cricket pitch. There is a lovely café / bar on site with beautiful views of sugar loaf bay.
