The nearest beach is Mothecombe Beach which is where the Blockbuster film Pride and Prejudice was filmed and where. There is a car park just above the beach with a tea shop and refreshment area, it really is a superb beach and is safe and well protected.
Bigbury Beach is also a sand causeway over to Burgh Island at low tide where many of the Agatha Christie plays were written (a famous haunt for the rich and privileged in years gone by with Edward and Mrs Simpson staying there as well as Noel Coward and Agatha Christie and many others),
Travelling further along the coast you will find Thurlestone Beach and Hope Cove and then round towards Salcombe with its amazing beaches at North Sands and South Sands and on the opposite side of the estuary.
