Slapton Sands & Slapton Ley


Slapton Sands enjoys South Devon’s Mediterranean style climate and this means that the sea is safe, clean and calm, and there are plenty of water sports such as surfing, windsurfing and canoeing to try out. 

The beach has lifeguards in the summer months and there is a flag system in place telling you where it’s safe to swim and when to stay out of the water. 

There is a large nature reserve, discover the plants and animals living in the freshwater lake, Slapton Ley. These vary according to the seasons, giving you the chance to see something different every time you come.

There’s a beach-side café serving drinks and light refreshments.

Slapton Sands has facilities for anyone with mobility restrictions, with disabled beach access and toilets. 

Slapton Sands is a dog-friendly beach, allowing dogs throughout the year.

The whole stretch of this particular piece of coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a great destination at any time of the year.
