Underneath the cliffs of Ness Headland is secluded Ness Cove – reached through the Smuggler’s Tunnel. No one is sure if the tunnel was used by smugglers, but the cove itself is said to have been used as a centre for contraband. Care should be taken on the steps down to the beach which can be slippery and not recommended for those with mobility problems. Best visited at low tide when there is plenty of beach (coarse sand) and some good rock pools. Marker buoys prevent boats from getting too close to the swimming area. If you want a beach less busy than Teignmouth this is the one for you.
