Beer Beach in East Devon is a very pretty, curved, pebble beach and usually quite busy all year round. The picturesque village of Beer lies around the cove and is a great spot for browsing or enjoying a meal or afternoon tea.
It’s good for swimming but you’ll share the pebbles with lobster pots and fishing boats as well as sunbathers, walkers and kids crabbing! It’s a great spot to buy fresh fish straight from the fishermen though and take a pleasure cruise on one of the many operating from Beer itself. Pecorama close and well worth a visit as well as Seaton beach.
There’s good parking on the cliffs but it’s about a 5 mile walk which may be a bit steep for little ones and older ones. You can also park in the middle of the town and take the road to the beach on foot. It slopes and can be a bit steep for some.
