Burton Beach lies just seaward of the attractive village of Burton Bradstock, roughly halfway between West Bay and West Bexington on the West Dorset coast.
This southwest-facing beach consists of coarse sand and shingle and lies adjacent to the popular Hive Beach. It runs southeast towards Chesil Beach. The private Burton Freshwater Beach lies just to the northwest over Burton Cliff.
Popular in high season, there is limited parking at Hive Beach just to the southeast along with toilets and a beach café.
Burton Bradstock beach and cliffs are part of the Dorset and East Devon World Heritage Site, more commonly referred to as the 'Jurassic Coast'.
