Downderry Beach

Beach of sand and pebbles with rocks at low tide, south-facing, boating.

A sheltered beach with shingle and rock pools at low tide.Cars can be parked in the village centre. A small slip road gives access to the beach for those launching boats.

On a low tide, it is possible to walk top Seaton but you MUST be aware of tide times as it is very easy to get cut off on an incoming tide.

While the main Downderry beach is easy to get to, the eastern end of the beach is more difficult and involves climbing a very steep cliff path, naturally secluded it is also a favourite haunt of naturists.

The sister ship of the Cutty Sark ( The Gypsey) is not far from the beach in the Kelp and can easily be explored by intrepid snorkelers
