Ness Cove is nestled at the foot of the magnificent Ness Headland, a red landmark feature of the South Devon coastline. The Ness beach is accessed through an original Smugglers tunnel. This incorporates both a sloping path down to the beach along with some steps. The tunnel is atmospheric, and you can almost feel the smugglers hauling their ill gotten gains ashore!
Ness Cove is also one of the most secluded and picturesque beaches and is completely enclosed and sheltered by the cliffs above.
The area of Ness beach is no more that a gentle 5 minute stroll along the sand from The Shaldon Beach Huts. Being a “reddish” shingle, the beach gently graduates towards the sea, and provides a fantastic area for swimming.
