South Beach-Blyth. A wide sandy beach about four miles across, this gently sloping beach runs from Seaton Sluice in the S to Blythe in the N. The land is fairly flat at this point of the coast and this beach works very well in SW as well as the more obvious directions. The North Beach at Blythe is too rocky for windsurfing. The only disadvantage is that the main launch point has virtually no facilities.
