Situated on the South Devon coast across the Teign estuary and opposite the town of Teignmouth, Shaldon is an unspoilt village with a thriving community. Many families in the village are still linked to the fishing industry and with a great range of local shops and attractions; it’s an ideal place for a relaxing holiday. Shaldon isn’t as commercial as many of the South Devon towns, but is perfect if you want to experience real Devon life firsthand.

Things to do in Shaldon

Explore Shaldon Beach, ideal for swimming, sailing, rowing, paddling and rock pool exploring, or the nearby Teignmouth Beach or Ness Cove beach, accessed via an original Smugglers tunnel. If you want to try out some water sports – head to Teignmouth and visit Sea Sports South West who offer kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, sailing and more.

If you want to explore the local area but don’t want to take the car, you can travel to Teignmouth on the oldest passenger ferry in England, where there are various cafés, restaurants and bars, as well as traditional seaside entertainment to enjoy.

Shaldon is on the South West Coast Path, and there is a spectacular walk from Shaldon to Labrador Bay with views across the coastline – on a clear day you can see Lyme Bay.

History of Shaldon

The original settlement was a little upstream, where the fertile valley was cultivated. Shaldon is built on reclaimed land from silt, and there is a retaining wall that prevents the sea from returning to the beaches. Gradually the inhabitants turned to fishing, although the village still has a very rural feel.
