Branscombe Beach

Visit Branscombe Beach

Unspoilt Branscombe Beach is a popular seaside destination on the South Devon’s famous Jurassic Coast. Backed by cliffs, the beach is mainly shingle and pebble but at low tide a sandy stretch is exposed.

Whether you want to have a quick visit or spend the day this beach is ideal. Enjoy the views and stop in and have a bite to eat at the beachside cafe.

Explore the area and take walks on the beach or along the scenic clifftops. The South West Coast Path runs all the way along the beach, eastwards to Beer Head and west towards Weston Beach.

There is a car park directly on the beachfront and even a helipad!
