This small cove backed by a lush, rugged hillside is a haven for nudists owing to its hidden location and difficult access path.

We parked at Coombe Martin and walked along the SW path until we came to a sign post, with a bench near by with the slightly overgrown path down to the beach, a few metres further along. There is no sign saying where the path goes. The path zig zags down close to beach level. There are some large steps to get down. The last part of the path has not been repaired since a landslide and is still a steep muddy slope of loose wet soil and gravel. A rope is there to help, but it's still very tricky to get down.
Once on the beach it is quite nice but mainly stony with some sand. At low tide the water's edge is mainly small boulders, which makes it tricky to get into the water. The beach feels quite sheltered and would be a great sun trap

As of 17/02/17 there is no change and access to the beach is basically a deep mud and shale bank. There is a rope half way down to hang onto but I didn't fancy it. The walk down from the cliff top is easy, though climbing back up is more recommended for people who are reasonably fit.

Winter storms in January 2014 have removed the bottom section of the access path to the beach (which had been repaired and renewed only in 2013). Access is now only possible for anybody willing to negotiate 25 yards or more of scree and by scrambling - or indeed by sea in a kayak!
