Exmouth Beach & seafront

Book Tickets Online

Exmouth Beach is well celebrated for its two miles of golden sand, rare on this coast and fascinating rock pools it's a paradise for children and adults alike.

Exmouth Beach is the ideal place to try your hand at watersports - be it Kite Surfing, Kayaking, standup paddleboarding or windsurfing. 

The gateway to the UNESCO Jurrasic Coast World Heritage site, Exmouth and its cliffs are teaming with geological finds. The coastline is also part of the South West Coast Path, and the beach and surrounding cliffs provide excellent short and long walks in the surrounding countryside. 

The promenade is two miles long and still has old favourites such as swing boats and crazy golf. The walk from the Marina to Orcombe Point is level and has wonderful views towards Dawlish and Torbay, there are plenty of cafes and 3 public Houses, plus and The Pavillion each with food along the front to stop and relax awhile.

Dog bins are provided and dogs are welcome on parts of the beach all year round but on the main beach seasonal restrictions apply, details of these can be found on the East Devon Council website.

      Clean, tidy. Sea never far away. Pretty flat. Plenty of access points. Loos, bars, ice cream set back and there's loads of parking Read full review
