Maceley Cove beach is a sandy beach that disappears at high tide and sits under the protection of the high cliff of Gammon Head.

Access is down a steep path from the coast path above and for the adventurous swimmers you can swim around to Elender Cove to the east.

The beach has no facilities and the nearest parking is at Prawle Point.
