Deadman's Cove

Deadman's Cove lies about 500 metres south of Dartmouth Castle on the South Coast of Devon.

East facing it lies between Ladies Cove to the south and Sugary Cove to the north. Very similar in character to the nearby Dartmouth Castle Cove, Deadman's Cove is a small quiet cove with no facilities.

Accessing this beach requires a ten minute walk along the coast path and then down a long flight of steps. It consists of coarse grey sand, shingle and rocks. It is dog friendly, with dogs permitted all year round.

The cove is overlooked by the majority of visitors to Dartmouth as it is known only by locals and ramblers on the South West Coast Path.

There are some fine walks south and west over Blackstone Point passing Compass Cove, Willow Cove, Shinglehill Cove to Combe Point and Warren Point on your way towards Stoke Fleming and Blackpool Sands or north to Dartmouth Castle.
