Northam Burrows Beach boasts an abundance of flora and fauna. Restharrow, bird's-foot trefoil, dune pansy, hounds tongue, Vipers Bugloss, sea stock, and pyramidal orchids are among the botanical highlights while lizards, moths, and rabbits make up some of the fauna here. You can also see and hear birds such as wheateaters and skylarks. Be aware, though, the beach is prone to dangerous currents and you should not attempt to swim here. Be aware of tide times if you are hiking on the beach, too. For information on tides visit magicseaweed.com/Westward-Ho-Surf-Report/1351/Tide.
