Blackpool Sands Beach

About us

A privately owned crescent of coarse golden sand set in a sheltered bay amongst evergreens and pines in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Blackpool Sands is one of the most popular family beaches on this stretch of coast.

Blackpool Sands is an award winning beach for water quality too - so you know you and your children are in safe hands.

It has a bathing raft when lifeguards are on duty (July to September) and sand pits for building sandcastles, a shop and a Venus cafe serving organic and local food. Water sports equipment is available for hire. No dogs from early April to end of October.

First Aid facilities also available.
