Lannacombe Beach, East Prawle, Kingsbridge, Devon

Lannacombe Beach is a small unspoilt beach on the Devon coast, not far from Prawle Point. Rugged rocks and a stretch of sand are backed by high clifftops and all in all, it has to be some of the most spectacular scenery in this part of the UK. It’s pure wild West Country, a world away from the hustle and bustle of the busier beaches.

The beach is dog friendly year round and there is a car park just behind, but it’s not very big, so you might have a short stroll from the next one to get here. Consider it well worth it because you can easily while away an afternoon playing on the sand, exploring the rockpools when the tide is out, and if you’re organised, you’ll have a good picnic to tuck into. Lannacombe holds a huge appeal to hardcore beach lovers who don’t mind there not being any facilities and who love the remoteness; they come armed with kayaks and paddleboards, some even go snorkelling.

Bring your walking boots and you can go for a hike on the South West Coast Path; wander up to Prawle Point, the most southerly part of the Devon coastline, and on to East Prawle for lunch at the Pigs Nose Inn. Simplicity, seclusion; sometimes the best things in life are free.
