If you’re looking for a great spot for a family beach holiday, take a look at Teignmouth. On top of the traditional sun, sand and surf there’s loads more to see and do that’s guaranteed to keep the kids and the grown ups entertained.

Traditional Seaside Holiday

The beach itself is a long one so you don’t need to worry about the crowds, even during the summer. It stretches down from the mouth of the River Teign along the red cliffs which stretch toward Dawlish. The beach is overlooked by an impressive Victorian Pier and nearby you will find a play park, crazy golf, skate park, green, ice cream huts and parade, Teignmouth beach is one of those beaches that will take you back to your childhood. Teignmouth is also a dog-friendly beach during the winter months, so you can even bring the dog along for an out of season break.

Things to Do

If you get fed up of just kicking back and relaxing, the town has a wide range of shops from Fish and Chips to souvenirs or you could catch the passenger ferry across the water to the village of Shaldon.

If you’re feeling thirsty or the kids need re-fuelling, there’s plenty of local cafés serving drinks and light bites and there are nearby toilets so you don’t get caught short. Onsite parking means you don’t have far to carry your beach gear and there’s disabled access for those with mobility restrictions. There’s also plenty of accommodation nearby including family-run hotels and B&Bs. You’ll also find self-catering cottages in the area or you can get back to nature on one of the local campsites. Teignmouth isn’t far from other major towns such as Exeter and Newton Abbot, so in the evenings you can check out some of the local nightlife.

For more information on water quality and advice of how to have a fun, healthy relaxing time at the beach visit the Beachwise website.
