There’s nothing better than chilling out after a day spent in the sea at one of the many beach cafes in Devon, tucking into a freshly caught crab sandwich or a rich ice cream produced at one of the local dairies. The Beachhouse Cafe at South Milton Sands is a painted shack complete with wooden benches on which customers can bask in the glorious sunshine while overlooking the famous Thurlestone Rock.
