Sandymouth Beach is an untouched pebble and sand beach on the wild north coast. A waterfall interrupts the imposing sea-beaten cliffs of this rugged beach, known for its fascinating geology.
An unspoilt stretch of sand owned and cared for by the National Trust, the beach widens at low tide, revealing rock pools along the shore, that spans almost 2 miles to join with neighbouring bays like Crooklets. A Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its geological features including fossilised plant remains and 300-million-year-old twisted rock formations.
Lifeguards patrol the beach in summer months.
