Smuggler's Cove Teignmouth

Smuggler's Cove is the beach we use just south of Teignmouth. You can only get to it via a long tunnel through the cliffs which used to be used by smugglers to get their booty ashore and avoid the coast guards.

It's a pretty cove, big enough for a lot of people but not that many go so there's plenty of room. The cliffs are made from a course red sand which is constantly crumbling so siting too close to the cliffs is a bit dodgy.

Before you go through the tunnel there are a couple of old dis-used kilns and there's a small zoo and cafe. The car park is big and only costs £2.80 for the whole day.
