Paignton, Fairy Cove

This sheltered and quiet beach is situated just south of Paignton Harbour. It has a wealth of interesting rocky features and is popular with local rock poolers. Make sure to look into the old post holes drilled into the rock that are filled with anemones. Well worth a visit.

Fairy Cove is located at the far end of South Quay which runs along the side of the harbour. Roundham Road car park (TQ4 6DH) is nearby, and the station is a 15 minute walk away.
