An unspoilt picturesque cove at the northern end of Start Bay.

This crescent of coarse golden sand 2/3 mile long is flanked by steep, wooded cliffs. Very popular with families, it has first aid and lifeguard facilities. Fishing is a favourite activity enjoyed at Blackpool Sands. Stretches of lush countryside add to the beauty of Sands which remains a jewel among the beaches of the South Hams.

Blackpool Sands is on the South Devon Heritage Coast, and adjacent to the South West Coast Path.
