Babbacombe Beaches

Babbacombe Beaches

Award-winning Babbacombe beaches include two spectacular beach bays, Babbacombe Beach and adjacent Oddicombe Beach. Both these sheltered beach bays are incredibly popular with families and offer lots of opportunity for watersports including sailing and diving. Dog friendly Babbacombe beach has good family facilities including wcs, a cafe and shop, a sailing club and windsurfing outlets.

Babbacombe Beach - dog friendly

A stunning small beach bay, Babbacombe beach is privately owned and accessible via a cliff path leading down from the cliff top Babbacombe Downs gardens. Popular with families, visitors and for weekend sailing, Babbacombe beach is a sand and shingle beach flanked by high cliffs, offering great rock pooling opportunities when the tide is out. Babbacombe beach is accessible via a very steep road, with a small car park situated at the bottom with limited parking. Dogs are welcome and facilities include a cafe, public toilets adjacent to the beach open across the summer season, diving, a promenade and a slipway (check with the Beach Cafe for permission to use the slipway).

Oddicombe Beach

Blue Flag Oddicombe beach is famously flanked by vast red sandstone cliffs and is a popular sandy beach accessed by either a steep footpath or by heritage cliff railway. Facilities include a cafe, beach hut, boat and deckchair hire, a promenade and watersports including sailing and paddleboats.
