#1 of 14 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.

  • Great place and a beautiful setting. Prices are expensive with a captive audience. Having said that the service and food is excellent so don't give it a miss. Sod highly recommend. Xx
  • Beautiful beach. Clean and tidy. Great rock pooling at one end when tide is out. Well worth the visit if you’re in the area. Car park is £8 for all day (is cheaper the later you arrive) and it is a small pebble beach not sand, but personally I prefer that.
