Opening Times
View Details

A popular shallow sandy bay, making it an ideal beach for BBQs and watching the sunset.

Bantham sits at the mouth of the 22 mile long River Avon, this great  beach is part of the designated South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

It’s also won awards from the Marine Conservation Society and the coveted Blue Flag, so you know it’s clean. You can see Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island from the beach - a couple of interesting locations that are well worth a visit. You can get to Burgh Island by taking a ride on the famous ‘sea-tractor’, which the kids will love. Bantham is shallow and sandy so it’s great for families with kids who want to do a little swimming or paddling, and to keep anxious parents’ minds at rest there are lifeguards on duty from May to September. At low tide, you’ll find loads of shallow pools that warm up quickly in the sun and are perfect for crab hunting.
