Close to Paignton is Elberry Cove, a quiet inlet with a small pebble beach. It is an extremely peaceful place, so you can relax without being disturbed by noisy crowds or amusement arcades.
The beach can only be accessed on foot, so if you have the car with you, park at Broadsands and take a stroll along the coastal path. The scenery at Elberry Cove is beautiful; it’s framed by wooded hillsides and the sea is crystal clear and safe to swim in. Further out, the deep waters make this an approved water-skiing spot. At one end of the beach you’ll find the remains of Lord Churston’s bathhouse, a romantic 18th century ruin.

Elberry Cove was one of Agatha Christie’s favourite bathing spots. Her holiday home at Greenway is not far away, and the cove even features in one of her novels, The ABC Murders, as the setting of Sir Carmichael Clarke’s untimely death. You'll find Elberry Cove on the Agatha Christie Literary Trail.

Access:
Not easy with a long uneven path steps and shingle beach.

Dogs:
Dogs are welcome all year round.
