Broadsands Beach

Broadsands beach is a beautiful sweep of fine red sands, between rocky headlands. This beach is an ideal beach for families with children, the long promenade is lined with colourful beach huts and gives a level walk to both ends of the beach.

This beach is a favoured starting point for coastal walkers.

Facilities at the beach include parking, toilets, food, beach huts, deckchair and pedalo hire.

Devon also has a similarly named beach near Watermouth between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin on Devon’s North Coast, click here for Broadsands beach, Ilfracombe.

Broadsands Beach is a Blue Flag Beach and has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

Broadsands Beach has dog restrictions.
