Blackpool Sands

Easter is here - and the snow has gone!!    This weekend our shop, take away and cafe will be open every day of the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Set in an unspoilt, sheltered bay amongst evergreens and pines is Blue Flag awarded Blackpool Sands - one of South Devon's most beautiful natural treasures.

Venus at Blackpool Sands are perfect for peaceful breakfasts, lazy light lunches, sensational, summer sunset dinners or coffee and cake with friends.
