Beverley Holiday Homes

South Devon’s Best Family Friendly Beaches

South Devon is home to some of the most stunning award-winning beaches in the South West of England. Many have been awarded a Blue Flag status giving a guarantee to visitors that these beaches have excellent facilities, are litter free and have achieved a high standard of water quality and the perfect combination for families to enjoy.

Our South Devon beaches really do have everything to offer, and more. From long sandy beach walks to quiet picnic spots and charming secret coves, owning a holiday home here on the English Riviera really does make for a perfect sanctuary by the sea.

Finding the perfect family friendly beach in South Devon isn’t too difficult but we’ve decided to put together our top 5 to make it that little bit easier for you to decide:

Beverley Holiday Homes

1. Broadsands Beach – Blue Flag Status

Nestled between the towns of Paignton and Brixham, Broadsands is a popular choice for families with children. This beach is a real hidden gem and a great alternative to the busier main beaches of Torquay and Paignton offering the traditional seaside attractions.

2. Torre Abbey Sands – Blue Flag Status

Torre Abbey Sands is the main beach for Torquay, being popular with holidaymakers, day visitors and locals. This is a favourite spot for young holiday makers, who also take the opportunity to use the grassy expanse of nearby Torre Abbey Meadows. Climb the illuminated staircase and enjoy some jaw-dropping views from the platform at Rock Walk or simply sit back, relax and enjoy an al-fresco lunch along the promenade whilst taking in the sea breeze and views across the English Riviera.

3. Goodrington Sands – Blue Flag Status

This popular beach in Paignton is divided into two sections; the quieter North beach and the more popular South Beach. The UK’s largest outdoor waterpark Splashdown at Quaywest is located virtually on the beach, as well as an amusement arcade, gift shops, and bars and restaurants to enjoy with views across Torbay.  At low tide Goodrington Sands’ most popular activity becomes available –  rock-pooling which the whole family can explore.

4. Blackpool Sands – Blue Flag Status

Blackpool Sands is a beautiful curved pebble beach located near Dartmouth in South Devon and just a short drive from Beverley Holidays. With its turquoise blue waters, plenty of facilities and activities for families and car parking right next to the beach, this is an ideal place to visit and enjoy with the family.

5. Slapton Sands – Blue Flag Status

With its 3-mile long stretch of beach, Slapton Sands is the perfect place to enjoy a more peaceful day out. The shingle beach and clear, calm sea is a popular choice for families who want to spend that quality time together. Close to Dartmouth and family visitor attractions such as Woodlands and  it is definitely worth the drive.
