"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Salcombe - South Sands Beach

South Sands beach is located near the entrance to Salcombe Harbour in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Estuary is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Nature Reserve.Nestled in a small east facing bay, sheltered from the south westerly breeze and nestled between highcliffs, South Sands is a perfect place to enjoy the beach. The Beach is wide and sandy at low tide, butat high tide the beach is almost completely covered by the rising tide. Ideally located to take full advantage of the excellent sailing, the beach has a regular ferry service to bustling Salcombe.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
