The best time to visit Popham Beach south of Bath is at low tide, when beachgoers wander freely out to a winsome rocky mound called Fox Island. It’s fun to clamber on, and sea snails, periwinkles, and occasional starfish turn up in the tide pools. There’s a lifeguard on duty in summer, a picnic area, and a changing house with showers.
