Sunny Cove

Sunny Cove - Devon

© Ben Tucker

Directly across the estuary from Salcombe's popular North Sands and South Sands beaches is the lovely little Sunny Cove. Apparently named because of its sunny aspect the beach here is also slightly more exposed to the wind and waves than Salcombe's other beaches.

Access is generally easiest from the adjacent Mill Bay beach or the South West Coast Path
