This fine beach, located just five miles east of Plymouth, is at the edge of the South Hams. It’s a National Trust beach and sits by the South West Coast Path. The scene is varied and features the Mew Stone, a wedge-shaped island just off shore. There’s also an old mill, which has been converted into a cafe. The area is part of a Marine Conservation Zone, featuring varied seaweed species and a host of wildlife. Children are attracted to the rock pools that appear as the tide drops. The beach is safe for swimming, kayaking and all manner of water sports..
