Stoke beach, Devon

Stoke Beach lies on the South Devon coast about twelve miles southeast of Plymouth and roughly halfway between the mouth of the River Yealm at Noss Mayo and the mouth of the River Erme at Mothecombe (Meadowsfoot).

Southeast-facing the beach is quite small and consists of greyish sand, shingle with large rocky areas complete with rock pools.

Parking is limited here so arrive early to avoid problems. Conversely use the larger National Trust car park above Stoke Point and walk from there.

Access is quite a chore down steep wooden steps, so the beach is usually not all that busy. Facilities are available in the village of Noss Mayo.

Stoke Beach is dog friendly in that dogs are permitted here all year round.
