Sandymouth is a long sandy beach at low tide, but at high tide the water can come right up to the shingle bank or rocks at the top of the beach. Its a popular beach with a few caravan parks on the road leading to it, so it can get crowded in the summer with all forms of surf craft on the water.
Parking is available in a car park at the top of the cliffs above the beach, its then a bit of a walk down the cliff path to the beach.
Facing west on this exposed stretch of coastline, Sandymouth does receive a fair amount of swell and there can be some nice peaks breaking on the sandbanks all along the beach. Access isn't great for windsurfing, but it is fine for kite-powered sports, although the winds can be a little gusty thanks to the cliffs backing the beach.
