Sunny Cove

Sunny Cove beach lies on the eastern bank of the Kingsbridge Estuary opposite Salcombe on the South Devon coast.

Just to the southwest of Mill Bay, the beach faces west across the estuary to Fort Charles and the remains of Salcombe Castle. The beach consists of gently sloping fine golden sand and the great views make all the beaches here very popular with families.

The beach does get completely covered at high tide, so please be aware of local tide times. Swimming is possible here but bathers should take care not to stray away from the shore as there can be dangerous undercurrents in the estuary.

Access is easy and its proximity to the town of Salcombe and the village of East Portlemouth, means that the beach can be busy in high season.

Parking is available at the National Trust car park in Mill Bay or in the small free car park in East Portlemouth. The nearest toilets are located at Mill Bay.

All other facilities are a ferry ride away in Salcombe.

Dogs are permitted all year but must be on leads between May and September.
