Coryton Cove Beach (aka Gentleman's Cove)

Coryton Cove beach is an ideal family beach with gentle shelving sand/shingle and rock pools. The cove lies between the red cliffs of Dawlish and is backed by the train line.

At one end you have a hard promenade with a cafe and beach huts. To park best to park in the town and take a short walk.

Coryton Cove beach was formerly known as Gentleman’s Cove taken from the times when beaches had segregated male-only bathing.

Coryton Cove Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

Coryton Cove Beach has dog restrictions.
Coryton Cove, Dogs not allowed May - September.
