Blackpool Sands

Blackpool Sands quality assured

Blackpool Sands, set in a sheltered bay surrounded by evergreens and pines, is one of south Devon’s most beautiful natural treasures. An award-winning family beach with turquoise blue sea giving it an almost Mediterranean feel. A coarse sand beach, as are all the main beaches in this area and all incorporating ‘Sands’ as a historical name, see our FAQS page for the advantages of a coarse sand beach.  You can also visit Blackpool Gardens - situated close to the beach, open from 1st April to the end of September.

Lifeguard patrol and no dogs during summer season. Sand pits, a bathing raft, kayaks, paddle boards, wetsuits and deckchairs for hire, Venus Beach Café serving a range of delicious hot and cold food, Venus Take-away and a well-stocked beach shop, it has something for all the family. But don’t just take our word for it, come and see for yourself!

Dog Friendly Winter only. Dogs are permitted from November to February.
