Gara Beach (aka Gara Rock Beach)

Gara beach, also known as Gara Rock Beach, is a sandy beach with plenty of rocks, tunnels and caves to explore. If you’d like to visit Gara beach from Salcombe, it’s probably faster and easier to take the estuary passenger ferry and walk rather than to take your car.

The beach has no facilities although has limited parking. Access to the beach from the coast path is steep in places.

Gara Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
