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!
Blackpool Sands November 5th 2020 update:
Following new lockdown regulations, the Venus Takeaway will be open each day from 9am to 7pm for grass fed Devon burgers, chicken burgers, fish n chips, bacon baps, tacos, vegan tagine and chilli non carne. If you are coming later in the day when it’s dark, you may like to call ahead and book on 01803 770209 to cut waiting times. Please continue to observe social distancing at all times.
The café itself, shop and toilets will all remain closed.
Dogs are now permitted on the beach for the winter, but please do clear up after them as the main part of the beach is not tide washed regularly.
#staysafe in the great outdoors
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!
