East Portlemouth Beach - Devon

Set across the harbour from Salcombe East Portlemouth is far quieter than Salcombe\'s other beaches. The beach itself is a long sandy stretch which becomes a series of smaller coves at higher tides - Fishermans Cove and Smalls Cove which lead down to Mill Bay.

With clean shallow water this is a great spot for kids. There are also plenty of rockpools to explore as the tide drops. A backdrop of woodland and the South West Coastpath make this an idyllic spot to escape the crowds. Perhaps the easiest way to get here is via the ferry from Salcombe.
