Blegberry Beach is a west facing beach situated about half a mile north of Hartland Quay on the North Devon Coast.
The beach consits of rocks and pebbles with a little sand uncovered at low tide. A feature of the beach is the dramatic geology cut in places by waterfalls tumbling down from the cliffs above. Access is along the Coast Path - a 20 minute or so walk from Hartland Quay.
The sheer cliffs rise over 600 feet from the sea and care should be exercised whilst in the area. To the north lies Damehole Point, a rocky cove midway between Hartland Point and Hartland Quay, whilst to the south lies Dyer's Lookout.
The South West Coast Path runs south towards Hartland Quay, Speke's Mill Mouth, Welcombe Mouth and the border with Cornwall. To the north lies Hartland Point, Shipload Bay and Clovelly as you enter Barnstaple Bay.
