South Sands & Bolt Head

South Sands is a wonderful safe and clean family beach. A very short walk from Underbecks, it has plenty of lovely golden sand and a stream to dam for hours of fun.

On the beach, in the old lifeboat house, is South Sands Sailing, which offers a huge variety of watersports.

From the beach - the sea tractor above meets the ferry below - between April and October you can also catch the South Sands Ferry to Salcombe. It runs roughly every half hour on the hour and half-hour.

Bolt Head

There are some lovely walks around Bolt Head, which is part of the South West Coastal path. The first stop on many of these walks is Overbecks.

Overbecks has a wonderful garden and some fascinating old picures of the local area. Our kids have always enjoyed looking for the friendly ghost under the stairs too.

Bolt head itself is a beautiful place - why don't you try it?
