NESS BEACH SHALDON
Keep Britain Tidy Quality Coast Award 2011
Apart from the main estuary beach front in Shaldon, there is the popular Ness beach (see below for more information).
Ness Cove lies at the foot of the magnificent Ness Headland, a red hued landmark feature of the South Devon coastline. The Ness beach is accessed via an original Smugglers tunnel, that comprises both a sloping path down, and some steps. Ness Cove is one our most secluded and picturesque beaches, completely enclosed by the shelter of the cliffs above.
Mainly shingle, the beach graduates gently towards the sea, and provides a great swimming area. Fishing for shrimps in the rock pools, or try fishing from the beach. RELAX !!sit and watch the rest of the world go by.
There are yellow marker buoys out to sea, and boats are not permitted to enter the area between them and the shoreline, to enable swimming safely, apart from access to the beach via a marked access lane as marked on the beach maps.
You can book the beach for evening barbeques, via the Teignbridge District Council
Dogs are permitted all year round. Teignbridge District Council welcomes responsible dog owners, please ensure that you clear up after your pet.SHALDON BEACH
Shaldon Beach can really be said to be the real scene of 'Messing about on the River !! “ It is a hive of beach activity- Sailing, fishing, swimming, canoeing, rowing and people just messing about in and out of the water. Why not join in the many things that take place?-the Shaldon Regatta, the Water Carnival to name but a few.?
At high tide, huge container ships enter the narrow estuary mouth to dock at the Port of Teignmouth - or watch the local rowers compete against each other or be out in training. Take a trip to Teignmouth from Shaldon beach on the oldest passenger ferry in England.
Shaldon estuary beach is a mix of shingle and reddish sand , full of shells and beach treasure. The beach gently slopes towards the mouth of the estuary.??
Near by Shaldon beach are many local shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
From May to September Dog walkers may not walk their dogs on sections of this beach. Teignbridge District Council welcomes responsible dog owners, please clear up after your pet

Teignmouth Main Beach
The lustrous stretch of coastline from Teignmouth estuary to Dawlish is called Teignmouth Main Beach. This particular seafront is hailed for its ability to intermingle rustic views of the striking Jurassic coast with a sweet sense of nostalgia, conjured by the Victorian pier and promenade. Rural but not overtly rugged, the beach is a mix of shingle and sand and slopes gently towards the sea. Teignmouth has even won an award from the Marine Conservation Society for its clean waters; they are so clear it is sometimes possible to spot dolphins off of the coast. For those interested in coastal features, the array of sand bars are worth studying, as they can change shape over as short a period as overnight. However if you're simply looking for spectacular views, the Torbay coastline is in view to the west of the beach.
The pier, erected in 1867, is evocative of yesteryear, where bathing machines were still a thing of common necessity. Yet the pier does not simply serve as a monument of sentiment, it is dotted with arcade games that will keep the children (young and old) entertained for hours. Aside from these amusements, there is still plenty to do: the award-winning children's play area should easily keep little ones occupied. If some light sport is the order of the day, adventure golf is ready to bring out the family's competitive side. For the more audacious sportsman, the nearby skate park is very popular.
The beach can cater for a more leisurely day out; the shops and cafes that lace the coastline ensure that afternoon tea is an option for those seeking an hour's recluse from the sun. Simple pleasures are not neglected; deck chair hire is available for those with a novel and plenty of hours to spare. Such peace and quiet is possible on this beach, as its impressive length means that overcrowding is rarely a problem, even in the holidays. It may of course be more bustling if you care to join in with the annual summer carnival celebrations, or even have a day at the fairground during the regatta.
