Nearest town

Kingsand (1 ¾ miles)

Together with its twin village, Cawsand, Kingsand is a little piece of holiday heaven. Tiny, twisting streets, a string of three beaches separated by rocks (excellent rockpooling to be had here) and calendar-perfect fishermen’s cottages have inspired many a photographer here. If you’re looking for an oasis of peace, you’ve come to the right place.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

We went in the off-season (October) and found it lovely and quiet, with no large school groups or families to contend with. Not the easiest place to find if you don't know Plymouth, though the parking was good. Overall a good location for seeing the Hoe and visiting the prettier parts of Plymouth harbourside.

The aquarium is of a fair size, but we felt the website was somewhat misleading as to the grandeur of the exhibits. The shark tank felt a bit of a let down, as the viewing wasn't as good as I've seen elsewhere. The design of the place also leads to somewhat unfulfilled expectations, as after the shark tank there is more to see, but it ends quite abruptly at the turtles. With a better route it could definitely be improved, though I give 5* to the quality of the tanks and the health of the animals.

Great for a rainy day

Been twice and the kids loved it both times. Go early on a rainy day in the school holidays as it gets busy.

Bantham (14 miles)

Bantham Beach is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has numerous awards tucked under its sandy belt. Overlooking Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can take the famous sea tractor and head to the island or sit and enjoy the views from the shore. A great surfing beach, the huge swathes of sand and sea allow plenty of space for everyone. Well-provisioned and life guarded in the summer, Bantham is a fantastic family-friendly beach.

Privately owned beach open to the public. A truly beautiful beach. Wide sands, surfing and wind-surfing, rock pools and a delightfully gentle introduction to the South West Coast Path with views over Burgh Island. No dogs allowed during the summer months. Charge made for car parking.

Great family fun beach

Lovely beach with little coves to hide away in, rock pools and lovely clean sandcastle sand; wide enough for kite buggies, best surfing beach on the south coast along with Bigbury on Sea beach opposite. Burgh Island out to sea with its restored evocative 1930's hotel clinging to the edge was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Island as well as a number of Agatha Christie novels! Dogs allowed on the beach Oct- April and then along the far right hand side (west) during the remainder of the year. Beach balls and skimboards etc plus coffees and teas available from the post office cafe back in the village- great estuary view while sipping away on the deck out back. Lunch or supper in the Sloop pub- best to pre book in season

Finnygook Beach (5 ¾ miles)

Beautiful sand and pebble beach, popular with surfers and bodyboarders. Short walk from car park (get there early in summer!) and cafe nearby. Finnygook is the eastern end of Portwrinkle, which itself consists of two beaches and marks the western extremity of Whitsand Bay.

Mrs Defries July 2011

Gorgeous sandy beach just the right size for letting children run free while small enough to still keep an eye on them. Convenient car park and small cafe. Slightly off the beaten track so a great place to get away from the crowds.
