Coastguards beach is privately owned by the Flete Estate, but is open to the public every day all year round. It is reached via a narrow road and slipway with bollards, giving access for wheelchairs, horse riders, wind surfers, canoes and surfboards, but there is only turning room and no parking available at the slipway. There is half a mile of firm sand at low tide, but a small beach at high tide.
Coastguards Beach is on the South Devon Heritage Coast, and adjacent to the South West Coast Path.
