For a taste of the West Country at its most rugged, wild and unspoilt, get yourself down to Lannacombe beach. Although it’s a small beach in comparison to some of the more expansive beaches further up the coast, Lannacombe is perfect if you want to leave the crowds behind and experience some of the best scenery in the area. There’s a small car park just behind the beach with room for up to 15 cars, so you’ll need to get there early to bag a space, but if you leave it too late there is further parking just a short stroll away. You can bring dogs to Lannacombe beach at any time of year, making this an ideal spot for the whole family.

Lannacombe is one of South Devon’s quieter beaches, tucked away from the crowds of holidaymakers that descend on the larger, more commercial beaches. If you want to stretch your legs there is access to the South Devon Coastal Path, giving impressive views of both the coastline and the surrounding countryside. At low tide, the waters on Lannacombe beach reveal shallow rock pools, which are always a hit with the kids.

Towns and Boat Trips

For other facilities like shops, cafés and restaurants, you’ve got Kingsbridge and Dartmouth close at hand. These are both major towns and you’re sure to find decent accommodation in either of them, from hotels to self-catering cottages and houses. And you don’t have to be a ‘surfer dude’ to enjoy the water. Both Dartmouth and Kingsbridge offer boat drips along the estuary of the River Dart.

Tides and Attractions

Before you get to Lannacombe beach, it’s a good idea would to pick up a tide timetable from the local Post Office or Tourist Information Centre. The tides here can cover the sands very quickly and you don’t want to get caught out. But if you fancy exploring the area then there are a number of attractions very close to Lannacombe, such as the ruins of the Lannacombe water mill, which can be seen on the low cliff edge by the beach.
