|South Milton Sands is a National Trust property located in the South Hams. It is part of South Devon's 'Area
of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. A 60 mile stretch of wild and rugged coastline, secretive estuaries and the
tranquillity are what define the South Devon AONB.
It is an ideal location with it’s long stretch of sandy beach, the exposed rockpools at low tide and, not to mention the petrified forests, historic shipwrecks and resident seal. It also offers a seasonal cafe, lifeguard cover and toilet facilities. This really is a magical beach with excellent facilities.
