Sandy Bay

Sandy Bay beach, Devon

Granted a Blue Flag Award for 2015, Sandy Bay lies on the South Devon coast near Exmouth, located between Orcombe Point and Straight Point.

Approximately a mile long, the south facing beach is indeed sandy with rock pools located at one end.

A favourite with families, there are good facilities here due to the nearby Devon Cliffs (Haven) and Sandy Bay (Hoseasons) holiday parks.

Access is easy from the adjacent car park.

West of Sandy Bay lie the Orcombe Rocks, well known to fossil hunters and enthusiasts, and the Geoneedle on Orcombe Point, unveiled by HRH the Prince of Wales in 2002, marking the western end of the 96 mile long (155km.) Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site
