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 allows dogs.
