Options for ice cream runs??

Thinking of planning an ice cream run in June, looking at Plymouth Breakwater to Newton Ferris or Cotehele.

This would be aimed at families and kids, so thinking calm protected seas, grass area, football, ice cream and sticky buns and the option for other family members to join at the stop spot rather than all via sea.

Both of these would need a rising tide and good weather - can anyone think of a better location in the area that could be an option too?

Meet at breakwater yes, launch at QAB? Not if I can help it. Great for low tide but compared to the free slipways in the vicinity and expensive launch.

Im with Treerat on that. QAB is 20ish. I use Mount batten, free parking, free slip and 5-10 for use of pontoon if needed depending on days/times

Nowhere for kids to play in NF really. Not much there either.

But the run up the river is beautiful.

Salcombe could offer more shops/food/Icecream wise and shove the kids on the beautiful sandy beach.

I guess it's balancing the boating with the family side.

If we're looking at South Devon and want decent beach / play area with parking / easy access for families with some facilities, also within reasonable range of launch sites and ability to park the boats.

Maybe work back from the family / beach bit.

How about Elberry Cove or Broadsands in Torbay?

A range of launch sites from Exmouth-Teignmouth-Torquay-Brixham Dartmouth.

Easy access from main roads, good parking / beaches, good anchoring for ribs, variety of launch points dependent on how long a trip you wish to make.

Alternatively East Portlebury or South Sands Salcolmbe - bit more of a car journey from the easterly launch sites, and 20nm from Plymouth.
