  • A Guide to beaches in and around Devon.
    miles of unending sand the cliffs are pockmarked with small isolated coves that are awkward to reach but well worth the effort once you descend to the shore Sandy Bay is not sandy at all but it is a wonderful place for a picnic while there is sand in the centre of Combe Martin the beach looks unprepossessing at high tide but when the water goes out the sand appears For those of you who want to take all of your clothes off then Wild Pear Bay has a beach that is a favourite with naturists The steps that have been carved into the cliffs offer an arduous climb but the beach a mixture of sand and pebbles is wonderfully secluded and has a fresh water stream on its northern side The nearest car park is the beach one in Combe Martin but it is only a short walk along the path to Lesser Point to find the steps down Further east along the coast near the small village of Lynton is Woody Bay This is a lovely sheltered spot where the steep cliffs are covered in thick woodland and a fast flowing stream carves its way down to the shore Although the bay is covered in rocks pebbles and shingle this is a tranquil place to relax and take in the scenery with the only drawback being the climb back up the hill at the end of the day The last place in this area of Devon is Lynmouth Bay You can reach this pretty village from Lynton via a cliff top railway and although the beach is not too spectacular there are some excellent woodland walks up Glen Lyn Gorge and its lovely waterfalls The numerous estuaries that make this area such a popular place with the boating fraternity punctuate South Devon From Plymouth in the west to Seaton in the east the number and variety of beaches in extensive so here are a few to whet your appetite Close to the village of Down Thomas is Bovisand beach a secluded sandy cove backed by some low cliffs and well off the beaten track The beach lies within the boundaries of the Wembury Voluntary Marine Nature Reserve that covers 4 miles of coastline and is the natural habitat of the bloody eyed swimming crab and the blenny a fish that lives out of water Mothecombe at the mouth of the river Erme offers safe estuary bathing and a fine series of sandy beaches but further east along the coast is Bigbury on Sea from where you can walk along the sand at low water to Burgh Island home to the famous Art Deco Hotel and to the Pilchard Inn a former smugglers haunt The coastal inlet of the Kingsbridge Estuary with the yachting centre of Salcombe at its entrance has three excellent beaches and many cottages to rent South Sands East Portlemouth and Mill Bay are all reachable by a regular ferry service from Salcombe as local car
