Looking North along the beach at Beesands

Beesands is located midway between Hallsands and Torcross on Start Bay in South Devon. Beesands is best known as a tourist destination, but is still a fishing village that concentrates mainly on crab and lobster fishing through Britannia Fisheries.[citation needed] There is an Anglican chapel in the village dedicated to St Andrew.

Keith Richards' family regularly spent holidays at Beesands during the 1950s. Keith Richards and Mick Jagger's first public performance was at The Cricket Inn in the village.[1][2]
