South Devon’s Beaches are some of the most stunning in the South West.

Beaches Near Dartmouth

Our local beaches are truly stunning and what better place to enjoy in summertime, but also for walks in the cooler months.

Blackpool Sands:

Blackpool Sands is without doubt one of South Devon’s most iconic and most visited beaches and sits in a sheltered bay surrounded by pine trees ​2 ½ miles​ ​from​ Dartmouth. It offers water sports facilities and has a large cafe and gift shop. ​What better place to spend a sunny day? Dogs are not permitted from 1st March through to the end of the Autumn half term.

Strete Gate:

Strete Gate beach is situated a mile west of the village of Strete, where a large car park is available. This vast expanse of beach is a mixture of fine sand and shingle where BBQs are permitted, but please respect the environment by removing all rubbish when you leave – thank you.


This mainly pebble beach to the west of Slapton is popular and has takeaway food and drinks available from cafes and the Start Bay Inn situated right on the beach.
