Beach Days

Though the coves in town have steep access which might not be suitable for prams, little legs and bags filled with buckets and spades, you only have to make a short journey to find lengthy golden shores with waters perfect for paddling. Blackpool Sands is less than a 15-minute drive from the centre of Dartmouth and is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards from July to September so you can paddle and swim safely between the flags. There’s a beach café so you can keep tummies full and gardens behind the beach should you need an hour or two of sand-free play. At Bigbury-on-Sea Beach, rockpools dot the beach and again, the water is patrolled by lifeguards during summer months offering safe sections to enjoy the sea. 40 minutes from Dartmouth, there is a café where you can tuck into lunch and a beachside kiosk if little ones need a quick snack.
