Best beaches in Devon
Some of the most popular beaches in Devon include Blackpool Sands, Woolacombe Beach, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay and Combe Martin Beach.
Blackpool Sands Beach
Nestled within a crescent-shaped bay is the beautiful, award-winning, Blackpool Sands Beach. Located 1.5 miles away from our Dartmouth Club Site, the beach is within walking distance, but has ample parking too if you decide to drive.
Further afield is the stunning sandy bay of Bantham, which is positioned on the South West Coastal Path, a hotspot for walkers. Slapton Sands Beach and Thurlestone are close by too, and they are undoubtedly the best year-round dog-friendly beaches near our Dartmouth Club Campsite.
Saunton Sands is a beautiful beach near the quaint English village of Saunton. With plenty of golden sand to explore, it is a popular beach for families and is dog-friendly. There is a gift shop, car park and restaurant nearby.
Salcombe North Sands
Salcombe North Sands is another beauty of a beach and welcomes dogs all year round. If you have brought your four-legged friend to Salcombe for an adventure, stick to the north beach, as dogs are only allowed to enjoy Salcombe South Sands between October and April.
Slapton Sands Beach
Slapton Sands beach, just a 10-minute walk from the campsite of the same name, is a rip-roaring ribbon of sand and shingle that sweeps along South Devon’s eye-popping coastline, stretching from Monument in the north to Torcross in the south and patrolled by lifeguards throughout the summer.
Widely considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK, Woolacombe Beach stretches over 3-miles of glorious golden sand, overlooking stunning views of the Bristol Channel and Lundy Island.
Combe Martin Beach
Combe Martin Beach is known for its sheltered bay and incredible scenic surroundings. Nestled below the small village of Combe Martin, this beach is a great place to come with children, with many rock pools waiting to be explored. Due to its sheltered location, this beach is hidden away from strong currents and winds making it great for swimming.
Please note: There is no lifeguard service at Combe Martin beach so make sure you take extra care in the water.
There are useful facilities nearby, including parking areas, public toilets and nearby cafés. Combe Martin village is also nearby with plenty of useful amenities.
