Bovisand Beach

Bovisand beach is a sheltered bay of yellow sand with cliffs either side. Located within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is popular with locals and families. There is a large expanse of flat sand when the tide is out, ideal for ball games and warms the water with the incoming tide, and is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. 

On a good day you can see across to Plymouth sound, and there are plenty of walks to enjoy along the coastline. 

The beach is situated on the South West Coast Path. Walk north walk to Plymouth (5 miles) or, a little further, walk south east to the River Yealm passing other beautiful bays - Heybrook and Wembury. 

Dogs not allowed May 1st to September 30th, when a seasonal ban is in place.

There is a car park both sides of the bay where a charge applies.
