Sidmouth’s Lovely sandy beach (when the tide is out). Shallow swimming and lots of sand if tide is out, check the tide tables. Rock pools, beautiful Connaught gardens and tea room. In holidays can be very busy to park. Alternatively park in Sidmouth town and it’s a short walk from the town’s pebble beach to Jacobs Ladder beach. The pretty town is well worth a visit too.
