Sugary Cove Beach

Sugary Cove is a small sandy and shingle cove at the mouth of the River Dart overlooked by Dartmouth castle.

Sugary Cove has no facilities with the nearest parking either on Castle Road (free) or at the castle pay and display car park. The castle has a cafe and there is a grassy picnic area above the cove.

You have a fair number of steep steps that take you from the path down into the cove.
