Where is Broad Sands Beach?
Get Directions


Broad Sands is a beach near Watermouth between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin on Devon’s North Coast. The beach is a sand and shingle cove protected by high wooded cliffs with some rocks to climb and caves worth exploring with care. The high cliffs make this a sheltered beach for swimming.

Although this is a hard beach to access you will find in the summer this can be busy as you have some local holiday parks.

The beach has no facilities with access down a steep cliff descent of 200+ steps from the coast path.

Devon also has a similarly named beach on the south coast near Paignton, click here for Broadsands beach, Paignton.
