"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Blackpool Sands Beach Weather and Tides

An unspoilt picturesque cove at the northern end of Start Bay. This crescent of coarse golden sand 2/3 mile long is flanked by steep, wooded cliffs. Very popular with families, it has first aid and lifeguard facilities. Fishing is a favourite activity enjoyed at Blackpool Sands. Stretches of lush countryside add to the beauty of Sands which remains a jewel among the beaches of the South Hams.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
