Sometimes spelt Elbury, this is a quiet beach with fantastic views. It’s just a short walk from Broadsands car park around the golf course along the coastal path. There is a Water skiing lane, so swimmers please avoid this!


Shingle beach surrounded by woodland and fields, that lies between Brixham and Paignton in Devon and part of the South West Coastal path.Ā Ā It is important for itsĀ eelgrassĀ beds, breeding grounds for nativeĀ seahorses, as well asĀ musselsĀ that areĀ farmedĀ in the waters nearby.Ā At its eastern end are the ruins of Elberry bathhouse, which was built for Lord Churston in the 18th century. Standing three stories high, with the ground floor being flooded when the tide rose, the lord could swim into the sea through a gated doorway, preserving his dignity. The buildings also held a “hot-bath” room where seawater was heated and pumped in.
