Current restricted access to Teignbridge's beaches:

Due to recent storm damage to the railway and seawall, some sections of the beach and walkways are not accessible to the public. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope that areas will return to normal as quickly as possible.

Affected areas:


Teignmouth seawall from the Yacht Club to Holcombe is closed although the public toilets are open as usual. Smugglers Lane and access onto the beach at Holcombe is also closed. Teignmouth beach is open and access along the beach up to Sprey point is possible at low tide but please stay away from the sea wall where repair works are ongoing.

Dawlish Town Beach

The main beach at Dawlish is now open however repair works are ongoing in some locations, please take extra care and adhere to all warning signs. There is no access along the beach or seawall after Coastguard Steps as repair works are continuing.

Boat Cove and Coryton Cove

These beaches are now open. The public toilets at Boat Cove and the seafront kiosks are also open.

Dawlish Warren beaches

Are all open, but access onto and off the beach between groynes 5-9 may be difficult at high tide due to loss of sand from the dunes. The sea wall is closed from the footbridge by the car park so no access is possible to Red Rock Beach or Dawlish along the seawall.
