Thinking about a day out at the beach? If you're travelling by train to reach Blackpool Sands, simply hop on a train to Totnes train station then take the 164 bus to Salcombe, then the A bus to Dartmouth til you get to the Blackpool Sands stop.

Blackpool Sands in Blackpool is a family favourite with so much to do in the town too. But remember, when the tide's in, the beach is much smaller than when the tide is out...
