Shaldon beach is located at the mouth if the River Teign and is a gently sloping mix of sand and shingle that levels out at the river estuary. It’s a popular beach during the summer, but if you fancy a quieter time its sheltered position makes it a great destination during the off-peak season too.

Attractions and Walks

Shaldon beach is where you’ll find some of the most spectacular coastline in South Devon. Because of its location and the way the sands have formed, it’s perfect for a number of water sports including sailing, fishing, swimming, canoeing and rowing, but bear in mind that Shaldon beach is not patrolled by lifeguards. At high tide, huge container ships enter the narrow estuary mouth to dock at the Port of Teignmouth - or watch the local rowers compete against each other or be out in training. Take a trip to Teignmouth from Shaldon beach  on the oldest passenger ferry in England.

However, if getting wet isn’t your style, there’s plenty more to do and see on dry land. Shaldon is close to attractions such as the Shaldon Wildlife Trust, Dartmoor and Haytor and Shaldon's Botanical Gardens. Alternatively, you can challenge yourself on the Templar way - an 18 mile walk that follows the export route for granite taken from Dartmoor, passing along the Haytor Granite tramway and the Stover canal, before finally passing through Newton Abbot towards Teignmouth and Shaldon.

Look out for

Visit Shaldon on the first Saturday of August to watch the Water Carnival – an event that kids will love. 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.
