Torcross Sands Beach - Torcross

Torcross Sands at Torcross is a long stretch of beach that has a different name depending on where you stand on it!

Torcross Sands is obviously related to the area surrounding the village and the near side of Slapton Ley.

An extremely popular and picturesque beach with a nature reserve and some of the UK's rarest flora and fauna. Many visitors come specifically for this with there being something different to see every time you come from plants to animals.

The WWII Sherman Tank

It's a fact !

In 1942 the whole area was evacuated so that the allied forces could stage rehearsals for the D-Day landings. Unfortunately a combination of live ammunition (instead of blanks) and limited visibility from all the smoke caused immense confusion and 946 American servicemen were killed. You can visit the stone monument to commemorate the fallen. Due to the impending invasion of Normandy the disastrous exercise, known as Exercise Tiger, was kept under complete secrecy and was largely 'forgotten'.
