Devon's prettiest beach?
Home to arguably Devon's prettiest beach, Blackpool Sands, this small hamlet is in a super location on the northern coast of Start Bay in the South Devon AONB. Clearly, not to be confused with Blackpool, the very popular holiday resort in North West England.

Arc of shingle
Most come here for the arc of pebble and shingle in its idyllic setting. There's plenty of parking behind the beach but a charge applies. Facilities include public toilets and a cafe, a shop and information boards. Given its compact size, Blackpool Sands is perfect for young families.

Others pass through Blackpool on the South West Coast Path. We'd particularly recommend climbing the coast path heading south. The view back down to the beach is the classic you see in guide books and on post cards.

The local area
With Dartmouth to the north and Slapton Sands to the south, the local area is packed with top destinations and attractions. You could spend weeks in Dartmouth alone but we'd suggest visiting Totnes and Torcross, Salcombe and Kingsbridge. Browse our recommendations for more ideas.
