You’ll find Branscombe Beach below the pretty village of Branscombe in Devon, and it’s a sleepy spot on the Jurassic Coastline that makes for a gorgeous place to walk. Branscombe is another Exmouth Beach on the spectacular Jurassic coastline. This pretty shingle beach is reached via a winding lane and the views more than make up for the longish walk down to it.
Regular fishing trips operate from Branscombe Beach, but if you stay behind while your angler goes in search of a catch you’ll find rock pools, a picnic area, a restaurant and toilets to help you enjoy this scenic Exmouth beach. The beach has its own car park close by and a shop to provide the perfect picnic too.
Branscombe beach rolls on for about a mile to Beer Head, and if you walk along to this unspoilt fishing village you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views back towards Seaton. Beer is tucked in one of the Devon coast’s most sheltered spots, and the Jubilee Gardens on the cliffs make the most of the village’s position in a suntrap.
You’ll be following a path well-trodden by smugglers as you walk between Branscombe Beach and Beer Head too. Well, you’ve got to explore at least one former smuggler’s haunt during a Devon holiday.
