South Devon Beaches
South Devon's coastline is truly beautiful. With soft golden sands to a rock pool-ers dream you'll find your perfect day out is waiting for you on the South Devon coast.There are miles of safe award winning beaches for families, or if you want more action, you can try some of the popular watersports on offer.

Many of our beaches have awards for water and beach quality, and a great swathe of the coastline is under the protection of an AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) or the National Trust.

Dawlish Warren is internationally recognised as a wildlife centre, while Bigbury on Sea hosts the fabulous Burgh Island, accessible only at low tide or by sea tractor.

If you want to get out and explore the coastline take a walk along The South West Coast Path. The South West Coast Path will guide you along this stunning panoramic sweep of coast and also allow access some hidden coves and beaches.
