A large expanse of sand that is a traditional family beach. There are two parts to the beach. Mothercombe Beach (also called Meadowsfoot Beach) is a privately owned beach and is open on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The nearby Coastguard’s Beach has free public access. The beaches are on the South West Coastal Path and The Erme Estuary next to the beach is managed as a nature reserve.
Mothecombe Beach has a building on the south side of the beach which is built on the site of an early lime kiln, the foundations of which were used in its construction. A little further to the south there is a small circular stone wall that used to be used (no longer is) as a swimming pool as it fills with water as the tide comes in. A little further on is a WW2 Pill Box.
Coastguards Beach also has a Pill Box although it is now almost covered by undergrowth. There are the remains of yet another Pill Box a little south of Coastguards beach.
