Downderry Beach in south east Cornwall is south facing and is a wide grey sand and pebble beach backed by cliffs. Activities include swimming, sea canoeing and kayaking, sailing, wind surfing and fishing from the beach. The water quality is excellent and the beach itself is Marine Conservation Society Recommended. A coastal footpath runs past for walkers.
The area is also popular for bouldering, especially at low tide. Photographers will enjoy the magnificent sea views from a memorial garden on top of the cliffs; and Seaton Valley Country Park is just two miles to the west for nature lovers.
