  • Information

    Thurlestone Sands is the larger of the two Thurlestone sands beaches – fine, shingle sand and sheltered waters. The southern part is also known as South Milton Sands.

    This beach is very much the beach that time forgot, a family beach for traditional beach activities and games; just relax and play amongst the rock pools.

    Just off the beach is Thurlestone Rock, a natural arc that gives the town its name.

    The town itself is full of thatched cottages and behind the beach you have fields and a National Trust nature reserve.

    You can occasionally get a south-westerly swell which produces some big surf.

    Facilities include car park, cafe, shops, toilets, lifeguards in the summer.

    Thurlestone Sands Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Thurlestone Sands Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
