Jacobs Ladder Beach

Jacob's Ladder is one of Sidmouth's two large beaches. An expanse of sand and shingle, the beach gets its name from the series of wooden steps that lead down from Connaught Gardens.
Whilst the beach can be accessed via the steps it is also possible to walk around from the town's main beach via a level path.

Backed by steep cliffs, there is some shelter from the breeze, particularly at the western end of the beach where you will also find plenty of rock pools at low tide. This is a great spot for families but don't forget to leave the pebbles on the beach they are protected by law!
