  • Beer Beach in East Devon is a very pretty, curved, pebble beach and usually quite busy all year round. The picturesque village of Beer lies around the cove and is a great spot for browsing or enjoying a meal or afternoon tea.

    It’s good for swimming but you’ll share the pebbles with lobster pots and fishing boats as well as sunbathers, walkers and kids crabbing! It’s a great spot to buy fresh fish straight from the fishermen though and take a pleasure cruise on one of the many operating from Beer itself. Pecorama close and well worth a visit as well as Seaton beach.

    There’s good parking on the cliffs but it’s about a 5 mile walk which may be a bit steep for little ones and older ones. You can also park in the middle of the town and take the road to the beach on foot. It slopes and can be a bit steep for some.

    Beer is a pretty seaside village built around a small cove on the south coast in East Devon.

    The pebble beach is a natural sun-trap and is sheltered from sea breezes by the surrounding cliffs. Part of the beach is still used by local fishermen and deep sea fishing trips can also be arranged.

    The beach is close to the centre of town and facilities include toilets, parking, shops, cafes.

    Beer Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs are banned on this beach from May to September but you can walk them over the Winter months but on a lead.
