Fairy Cove is a beach in Devon, England.

Nestled just behind the historic Paignton harbour wall lies Fairy Cove – a red sand beach that offers the perfect tranquil retreat during summertime. Secluded from the main eastern beach, this gorgeous spot is hidden between sandstone cliffs and a memorial garden. Calmer than many other beaches due to its wind and wave protection, low tide provides the perfect opportunity to explore the hidden rockpools and encounter the incredible sea life. Perfect for family adventures, the close-by facilities at the harbour provide visitors with toilets and refreshment options. Fairy Cove is a dreamy seaside destination, offering the perfect summer escape.
