Fab-u-lous for dogs!
Great beach with lots of space for dogs to just run and have a great time! 🐶🐶
We love this beach.. and it’s a lovely walk from Seaton. Finish off with a drink at the ‘inn on the shore’.

Pleasant dog friendly beach.

As always all car parking has to be paid for is not a great encouragement to get people to stay any length of time.

Expansive walking and exploring beach
Jul 2021
The beach is full of interesting rock pools, long walks and a peppering of venues to take refreshments. Not busy so very refreshing.

Downderry Dog Faeces Beech
Jun 2021
I have been coming to this beach for over 50 years but the past few years this beach has become “Dog Faeces Beach” What is wrong with people? I love dogs and it’s not the dogs fault it is the owners. I have always cleaned up after my dog AND disposed of it correctly, not bagged it then dumped the bag anywhere.

Today I was there with my 2 year old grandson who picked up a pebble only for us to find it had been placed on top of faeces to hide it rather than clean up and it was above high tide so no chance he sea would clear it - now said grandson has s**t on his hands!.

It could well be time that this beach does not allow dogs between April and September.

Rain or Shine

We stayed in Seaton and the beach continues onto Downderry Beach . The beach is a combination of pebbles and sand with lots of rock pools . Very bracing in the UK winds and rain and stunning when the sun shines

Delightful downsized Downderry
May 2021 • Family
When the sun is shines and there is enough blue sky to make a sailor a pair of trousers this place is delightful.

OK the beach is not golden sand, but it has interesting rock pools as the tide recedes, invites dogs all year round, and also has the fantastic Inn on the Shore with a large seaside deck on which you can relax and watch the sunset.

With a great coffee shop (Summink Different) and the highly rated Blue Plate restaurant (nearly always fully booked so say no more), Downderry offers a lot for such a small spot, small wonder it was voted one of the top seaside places by The Times.

Not too far from Plymouth
Mar 2021
Just before the Easter season we managed to come down midweek with the dog. Parking wasn’t as bad as we had been warned and we’d checked the tide times. Not bold enough to swim while the temperature out of the water was still barely 10oC but we did walk a fair distance east from the village. The sand is not golden but we’d guess grey limestone and varies from fine to small pebbles. It’s an attractive setting. An old guy in a raggedy tweed overcoat and wicker basket approached us firstly to proudly proclaim that he was a regular beachcomber and then to give us a sharp direction to be strict in clearing up after our dog, followed by a warning not to walk to the far end which he told us was already ‘rife with naked scum’. Unmoved by his caricature performance we gently completed our peaceful and refreshing loop walk back to the village.

A wild beach in October.........
Oct 2020
I went to Downderry with my girlfriend for a week in October and thought it was a really nice place. Don't go expecting a pristine, sandy beach as you may be disappointed. Its true, Downderry beach is more grit and pebbles than sand but its still windswept and beautiful - a lovely place to take a walk. As for the village - it's got one of everything you need - a pub (with a great view!!), a cafe, a restaurant and a well-stocked shop. Location-wise, Looe is nearby and Mount Edgcombe park is well worth a visit.
