Top 10 Beaches

Top 10 Beaches

Listing the Top 10 Beaches in South Devon is a difficult task! Everyone wants something different from a beach, be it peace and quiet, water sports or family fun.

Some of them are quiet retreats whereas others are busier with a range of attractions nearby.  We hope that this list, composed by feedback from visitors to South Devon, helps you to decide which will be your ideal South Devon beach.

• Bantham Beach - This beach is long and sandy with water shallow enough for children to swim safely, and lively enough for water sports enthusiasts further out.
• Beer Beach – a stunning shingle beach surrounded by limestone cliffs. Once a smuggler's haven it’s a wonderful spot to watch skilled fishermen bringing in their catch.
• Bigbury on Sea - A large open beach, suitable for surfing, with stunning views of Burgh Island and the South Hams coastline. At low tide the causeway is exposed to allow access to Burgh Island, catch the sea tractor back at high tide.
• Blackpool Sands - Blue Flag beach, and one of the most stunning in the whole region. A large shingle, beach surrounded by evergreen trees.
• Dawlish Warren - Dawlish Warren is great for wildlife enthusiasts and families looking for a large beach and who want to join in with local events and festivals.  There are also traditional amusement arcades and refreshments at this beach.
• East Portlemouth - Perfect for people wanting to enjoy a day of peace and quiet this sandy beach is situated on the estuary opposite Salcombe.
• Hope Cove Beach - A sheltered, sandy cove in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which is popular with families. The beach is backed by rocky cliffs and the village of Hope. Hope Cove was also used for filming by the BBC for The Coroner.
• Sandy Bay in Exmouth - A beautiful half-mile long privately owned sandy beach set in a secluded bay. A great beach for families, with rockpools ideal for searching and crabbing in.
• Slapton Sands and Torcross - A long sandy beach providing lots of room for beach games and walks. Ideal for families and nature lovers with Slapton Ley Nature Reserve found right next to the beach.
• Teignmouth - A long, family friendly beach overlooked by the impressive Victorian pier, with large children’s play area, skate park and crazy golf nearby
