- 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. 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 then probably the best parking option is at Prawle Point which will give you a walk of about 2 km.
- 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.
