Leas Foot Sands is a lovely little sandy beach located in front of the Thurlestone Golf Club, just north of Thurlestone beach.

The beach here is nearly always far less busy than its better-known neighbour and is often more sheltered from the breeze by the headland of Warren Point.

There is plenty to do at Leas Foot and it is generally safe to swim, although there is no lifeguard service. The rocks at either end of the beach make for some good snorkelling and are great for rock-pooling when the tide goes out.

Being slightly off the beaten track Leas Foot beach has no facilities itself. There are however some public toilets across the road beyond the golf course. Parking is also available a short walk away on the far side of the golf course.

Go along the coast instead

Do yourself a favour. Go along the coast a few miles in either direction - Hope Cove, via Thurlestone Sands, or in the other direction, Bantham.
