Can't believe that this is the first review of this ever popular food outlet. Perfect location on the beach at north sands, plenty to entertain the kids and food is good, decent grub. A must visit if you're in the area.
We ate here 3 times in all and were made really welcome. A great place if you have dogs who can have a swim on North Sands Beach right opposite! Very fresh and tasty sea-food and one night we enjoyed the BBQ which was great value for money, all swilled down with a bottle or three of their lovely house rose wine. A place to sit and watch the world go by, and great for an evening/afternoon out with friends and/or dogs.
Enjoy the sea views from this bright and airy restaurant within the South Sands Hotel. Seafood is the speciality here, with the dishes created to suit the seasons as well as the day’s catch. A fine selection of high quality spirits, cocktails and wines are also available.

Had a brilliant ride on the RIB. Saw seals out near Start Point and the remains of the lost village of Hallsands. Good information and great fun on the boat. Suitable for kids and adults
We had a brilliant time on the fast rib with Sea and Shore. Great fun and an amazing way to see the coastline.

Such a beautiful spot. Amazing views of Salcombe and out to sea. The house is quite interesting and but we loved the gardens best. We had a great tour with Sam and then enjoyed a cream tea on the lawn!

South Sands, Salcombe
Accessed either by boat, via a 10-minute walk through the woods from parking at Mill Bay, or a stroll from the Salcombe to East Portlemouth Ferry, Sunny Cove is a sandy beach which, as you might expect, catches the sun throughout the day, weather pending. It’s on the East Portlemouth side of the Salcombe Estuary opposite North Sands beach and Fort Charles, the ruined fortification that was originally constructed during the reign of Henry VIII to defend the Kingsbridge Estuary against French and Spanish Pirates. It’s a relatively gentle spot for swimming and ideal for picnics, lazy summer afternoons, and reaching on kayaks and paddle boards from other nearby beaches as well as being the perfect spot for building sandcastles. That said, the tide can come in quite quickly so make sure you don’t get caught out and be careful of the swell when bringing boats into the beach. Head there for the day in the summer or as a stop off en route to the café at Gara Rock or a longer walk along the coast path towards Prawle Point. Dogs are welcome all year round but keep in mind that there aren’t any facilities in the immediate vicinity (it would be a 10-15-minute walk along wooded footpaths) so take your sandwiches with you!
