You can’t miss Preston Sands, it’s the beach lined with brightly coloured beach huts that have become one of South Devon’s most iconic sights. The beach is an easy walk from Paignton Beach and it’s another popular spot with families keen to make the most of the safe waters and sands.
This beach has disabled access, facilities, cafes, a seasonal dog ban, deckchair hire and nearby parking – everything you need for a worry-free day by the sea. Deckchairs can be hired throughout the summer season, and summer entertainment is never far away.
Preston Sands is a great beach if you fancy taking your nets and getting down to some serious rock pooling as low tide leaves the sand potted with pools. With a Quality Coast Award as assurance of its clean waters Preston Sands is one of Torbay’s best-loved sandy beaches and it’s easy to reach if you’re in Paignton.
Take the football with you too as Preston Green just behind the beach makes just the spot for a kickabout, and if you follow the path along towards Paignton for a few minutes you’ll reach the Geoplay Park on Paignton Green.
