The Beach is stunningly beautiful, yet don't be misled by the name 'Sands'! The beach is in fact small pebble/ shingle however still beautiful and set within a bay of clean blue sea flanked by two headlands and backed by forestry and countryside. The beach has its own car park (fee was £4.00 for a car Sept 2020), this is for the whole day. If you hope to pay less for a quick hour's visit or two, think again! There are good facilities, toilets (very clean and well maintained), a beach shop selling souvenirs, drinks, tea shirts, etc. A Surf school is also available and a Hot and Cold food outlet with indoor and outdoor seating. The food costs are a little expensive, after all this is a captive audience, once you're here and paid, you're not going to leave. There's no shops or cafes for quite a distance as the area is very quiet and somewhat off the beaten track. Be sure to take a picnic or some sandwiches with you if you're watching the funds. No barbeques are allowed on the beach. Lovely place to relax, does get busy but large enough to spread comfortably. Get here early during Peak periods.

Parking right next to the beach, walking along before grabbing coffee and cake from the beach cafe. Great views and good coffee.

We have been walking the SW Coast path the past fortnight. Blackpool Sands was on one of our routes so we popped in for lunch. Very good , safe service and food was excellent. Toasted sandwiches, very fresh. We went again a couple of days later on our way to our second accommodation. Again couldn't fault anything. Later in the day I realised I was missing my Pandora bracelet. We had been on the beach and the cafe. I phoned and left a message not really thinking I would here back. Three days later I had a call and a chap called Fergie had found it while cleaning our table. I was over the moon. Thank you so much . Of cause we had to go back and have another super lunch! We would highly recommend.

I first visited Blackpool Sands over 60 years ago ! Loved it then, love it now. A mainly pebble/slate beach, but a great place to chill out with an exceptional view, & clean sea air to invigorate you.
