Broadsands is a beach on the coast of Torbay in South Devon, England. It is in the Churston Ferrers part of Torbay between Paignton and Brixham.

It is a tourist attraction, with a range of facilities[1] and a large pitch and putt course on the adjacent headland. The beach is popular for fishing and watersports.

There are good views of the Dartmouth Steam Railway, which crosses two Brunel viaducts near the beach on the section between Goodrington Sands and Churston.
