Known travel page Conde Nast Traveller have described this beach beauty as almost reminiscent of the Amalfi Coast. Good news too, the beach will soon be home to a takeaway with indoor seating set to open in April.

Whilst visitors wait, they can enjoy delicious locally roasted coffee, as well as pies and pastries from the Blackpool Sands Beach Stack.

To reach this beach, you will need to jump on a Great Western Rail train from London Paddington to Totnes, which will take around four hours. From here, you can take a bus ride to Townstal Crescent, and then another bus to Blackpool Sands.
