The walk is about half a mile along flat pathways and bridges around the lakes which are full of different bird life – don't forget your camera.


Duck feed is available from the main central shop which is a great starting point for the walk. Why not take the Dunster Detective books with you and see what you can find!

Stargazing in 'Dark Skies' at Dunster Beach

No, we don't mean Dark Skies as cloudy and miserable... What we mean is that Dunster Beach is a really great place to lay back on a rug and stare at the stars. There is very minimal light pollution here which makes it an ideal spot for stargazing.


It is a great activity for all the family and an education too. You may even see the International Space Station wiz across the sky.
