Blackpool Sands Beach, Dartmouth, England
If you fancy all the atmosphere and excitement of a holiday abroad but without actually breaking out the passports, then get yourself down to Blackpool Sands Beach. It’s a Blue Flag Award-winning beach backed by evergreens and scented pines, giving it more than a whiff of the Mediterranean. Blackpool Sands is privately managed and has kept its standards high, making it one of the most popular family beaches in the region. Blackpool Sands is also on the South West Coast Path, and so is in ideal place to start or finish a walk along this beautiful peice of South Devon coastline.
