Did you know that there is a beautiful rocky beach with access to a stunning pier just five miles from Bristol? If you didn’t then maybe it’s time to go and check out this beautiful area, with an impressive green park and a large, calm, 100-year-old, sea filled lake where it’s perfectly safe to try out your new paddleboard or practise your steering in that canoe you’ve been wanting to try out for ages. Portishead Beach is named after the nearby town, but it is also known as Woodhill Bay or Kilkenny Bay because of the other two bays that merge to form this stretch of beach. There are plenty of things to keep even the most active child or adult occupied for the day. With easy parking, a great pub serving fresh, tasty food, an open-air lido, the lake, beach and pier you could happily spend a very pleasant day here.
If you don’t have access to a car to get to Portishead Beach, it is only five miles from Bristol so maybe a bus journey could get you there but if your whole family want to enjoy the experience together then why not consider a local company such as https://www.autolynecarvanrental.co.uk/van-hire-bristol who specialise in Van Hire Bristol. You could hire a van that suits the size you require to transport your family and all the equipment you want to take to make the most of your day. A picnic basket full of healthy food and plenty of hot and cold drinks, some blankets and beach chairs, the canoe you’ve been wanting to try out, complete with paddles, some warm clothes to change into when the day is done and some fishing nets for the children to use while clambering amongst the rock pools. You can select the right size van for your needs and transport all your family from home to Portishead very easily.
However, you get to the Portishead beach, enjoy the quality time you spend together with your family, breathe in the fresh air, experience as a family all the fun times on the lake with that canoe and make some wonderful memories. Then drop all the equipment and family members back off at home before returning your hired van to the local company you got it from before heading home to reminisce about what a great day you’ve all had.
