Moor Sands Beach (aka Venerick’s Cove)

Moor Sands beach is a pebble beach with rocks and some rock pools, this makes its name a little unusual as you only get a small amount of sand available at low tide. Moor Sands Beach is also known as Venerick’s Cove.

This is a south-west facing beach that gets the sun all day.

Moor Sands is a remote beach only accessed from the coast path, and you have no facilities available. If you want to visit, the best parking option is at Prawle Point, which will give you a walk of about 2 km.
