Often appearing in the top ten best British beaches you cannot go wrong with this family beach. Living nearby i am probably a little biased but this beach is just so gorgeous.
I’ve tried a few of the other beaches along the South Devon coast but always come back to here. Its well catered with amenities including the charming Pilchard Inn on Burgh Island.
The sea is often a lot calmer particularly on the western side of the causeway and is perfect for a paddle or swim.
All in all a fabulous beach
