Blackpool Sands, Dartmouth

3.6
#3 of 10 in Outdoors in Dartmouth
With fine sand and turquoise blue waters, Blackpool Sands lays claim as one of South Devon's most spectacular tourist sites. The beach receives daily cleaning during the summer months. Swim in the clean, clear waters or, if you are more adventurous, hire a sea kayak or a boogie board. The beach offers shower and toilet facilities, including disabled facilities. Lifeguards are on duty, but only during the summer season. Enjoy an organic meal made with local produce in the Venus Beach cafe. For a change from the beach, visit the Blackpool Gardens and explore the paths through the trees and shrubs as you enjoy views of the sea. The garden is open between April and September.

  • £4 parking with plenty of spaces, and a beautiful scenic beach. No dogs allowed, and also no sand just pebbles. Regardless this beach was amazing!!
  • Why would anyone pay to visit this beach ! Nothing special- seen better in Cornwall. Try Holywell Beach!! But it is excellent for dog haters!
  • From the pictures this place look amazing. It is nice but I was expecting something different. As people have said the beach is pebbly and it can be quite busy. Worth a visit though.
  • Beautiful and clean beach with really nice food
  • Great location and the views to and from beach are amazing.
