Fairy Cove, Paignton

15.9 miles away – TQ4 6DT
Type of Beach – Sand & shingle
Dogs are permitted on the beach all year round.

Tucked away, just behind Paignton harbour wall is the little red sand beach of Fairy Cove. This pretty little spot is a world away from the main beach, just the other harbour side. Backed by sandstone cliffs and the memorial garden beyond Fairy Cove can seem like an oasis of calm in the summer.
The beach is fairly sheltered from the wind and waves, particularly at low tide when the beach is separated from the sea by flat rocks. As such, this is a great time to go exploring the rockpools for sea life.
