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.
