Hope Cove - Dog Friendly Beach in Galmpton, Devon

Hope Cove, comprising Inner and Outer Hope, nestles beneath dramatic cliffs and among sharp eroded rocks, just offshore.

An exceptionally scenic part of the South West Coast Path passes above the beach and there are plenty of facilities, immediately behind the cove.

The coast here is part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and both peregrine falcons and kestrels can be found just inland, among the greenery.

Protected by the National Trust, there is also a rich maritime history, featuring the wreck of a Spanish galleon in Tudor times and the loss of 708 souls on HMS Ramillie in 1760.

This is also a notable smuggling area, with fishermen collecting barrels of brandy from the seabed in far flung days.
