Ottery St Mary
  • The main beach is a crescent of pebbles, steeply shelving towards the sea and overlooked by high red cliffs at the western edge. It is famous for its fat round muffin-shaped pebbles.

  • There are two miles of flat, golden sand and many fascinating rock pools for the family to explore. Some stretches are dangerous for swimming and the advice on the signs should always be followed.

  • The beaches are pebble and sand with a wide esplanade. All amenities are within easy reach and there is good on street parking or in pay and display car parks.

  • 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.
