Vault Beach is a sheltered beach to the eastern side of Dodman Point which reaches up 110 metres from the water. It is a curved sweep of sand and shingle that gently slopes into the sea.
The sea here is usually pretty calm and bathing is generally safe, although there is no lifeguard patrol.
The far end of the beach is unofficially recognised as a nudist beach and can be quite popular during the summer.
Vault beach is dog friendly all year round.

First time here as of the beaten trek.
Desert was tricky for my legs but well worth it
Being dog friendly all year round is helpful too.
Calm although very cold seas
Even had a native visit in the shape of a seal.
Big surprise seeing him looking at you
Great nudist beach
Lovely sheltered naturist beach, glorious views, sea can be a bit choppy
