If you fancy all the atmosphere and excitement of a holiday abroad but without actually breaking out the passports, then get yourself down to Blackpool Sands Beach. It’s a Blue Flag Award-winning beach backed by evergreens and scented pines, giving it more than a whiff of the Mediterranean. Blackpool Sands is privately managed and has kept its standards high, making it one of the most popular family beaches in the region.

Blackpool Sands is also on the South West Coast Path, and so is in ideal place to start or finish a walk along this beautiful piece of South Devon coastline.

A Holiday Abroad in South Devon

On top of the pines and the sunshine, the waters at Blackpool Sands Beach are unusually clear and are tested regularly by the Environment Agency to confirm their cleanliness. There is also a superb range of facilities on hand. As well as the usual showers, toilets and disabled facilities, Blackpool Sands also has sand pits so that the kids can enjoy safe and supervised play.

Upgrade your Downtime

If you like to add a little adrenaline to your downtime, then why not try your hand at some exciting water sports?  Kayak, paddle boards and wetsuits are all available to hire on the beach. But if you’re thinking of taking the dog then you’d be best advised to find another of South Devon’s beaches, as dogs are not allowed in the car parks or on Blackpool Sands from March to the end of October.

A beach shop caters for all those beach essentials and there is plenty of accommodation close to the beach. Choose from B&Bs, guest houses and self-catering cottages so you can use the beach as much as you want to or take some time away from the waves to explore the local sights and attractions.

      Ideal family beach with sand pits for the little ones, beach shop and café. No dogs are allowed on the beach in the summer season so no worries about any mess on the beach Read full review
