Thurlestone Sands with its wide sandy beach is one of several locally owned by the National Trust and attracts both families and water sports enthusiasts. The wide sandy beach is backed by a nature reserve where rare and exciting birds have been spotted.
Those preferring exercise to sunbathing can take off along the South Devon Coastal Path for wonderful walks with spectacular views. Picturesque and historic Thurlestone village, slightly inland, with its 13th Century church and pretty thatched cottages, pub and stores.
A favourite spot for water sports including kayaking, windsurfing and diving. Visibility is good in the clear water and there are more than thirty wrecks in the area, some of which can be explored.
Lifeguard cover is from May to September.
Please note that the contact details are for the local TI not precisely to the car park, so please do plan your journey independently.
