Ferry in sunshiny weather

South Sands Ferry


Thanks to all our 2021 customers both young and and little older! We look forward to welcoming you back in 2022 when we start running again on the 2nd April.

Carrying foot passengers, prams and dogs the South Sands Ferry is a rare opportunity to travel by boat and experience the famous 'Sea Tractor', which travels out into the water to greet the ferry as it arrives at South Sands Beach.

The South Sands passenger Ferry runs between Whitestrand, in the centre of Salcombe, and the picturesque beach of South Sands, located at the entrance to Salcombe harbour.

Sometimes hectic, sometimes quiet, but always exciting!
