Dawlish Beach

The sandy beach is quiet and relaxing, facing the early morning sun and possibly the best beach in the area. There is easy access for the disabled and dogs are allowed in restricted areas. Within easy walking distance of the town but car parking can be difficult. This beach is safe for swimming.

Town Beach stretches for more than a mile in a secluded bay between Lea Mount and Langstone Rock. Summer temperatures often reach 30°C and boat trips are available during the summer season. A kiosk on the beach and nearby shops sell food and drink. which holds the furious winter sea back from invading the town There is a wide footpath on top of the sea wall stretching the full length of the beach to Dawlish Warren.
