I had been down on the Coast for work and it was the afternoon and I fancied a cup of tea and a walk on the beach before the long drive home. This place was beautiful and really recharged the batteries. On a sunny day this really hits the spot!
The beach is now reopen and car parks, takeaway counter and toilets all reopen.
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 shingle beach, as are all the main beaches in this area and all incorporating ‘Sands’ as a historical name, see our website FAQS page for the advantages of a shingle 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!
