South Milton Sands is also known as Thurlestone Sands South beach. The larger of the two Thurlestone sands beaches - fine, shingle sand and sheltered waters.
This beach is very much the beach that time forgot. Very much a family beach for traditional beach activities and games; just relax and play amongst the rock pools.
Just off the beach is Thurlestone Rock, a natural arc that gives the town its name. The town itself is full of thatched cottages.
Behind the beach you have fields and a National Trust nature reserve.
You can occasionally get a south-westerly swell which produces some big surf.
