Secluded and picturesque, Elberry Cove lies to the southeast of Broad Sands on the South coast of Devon.
Protected by Churston Point and just seaward of the Churston Golf Club, the cove is quite picturesque, set amongst the trees about 2 miles west of Brixham, Torbay.
The beach consists of quite large pebbles and shelves quite steeply into the water. It is best accessed by parking at Broad Sands and then walking alongside the Golf Course, to the cove.
The building on the right hand side of the cove is a ruined bathing and boat house. Northeast facing, this pebble strewn cove is popular with dog owners as it has no restrictions.
Parking and the nearest toilets as well as all the other usual facilities are found at Broad Sands to the northwest.
✔ Dogs permitted
✔ Interesting geology
