Things to Do
During your stay on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay, make sure you have enough time to visit Salcombe, a beautiful coastal town at the most southerly point of Devon.
At the mouth of the Kingsbridge Estuary, Salcombe is surrounded by no fewer than five beaches - Sunny Cove, Mill Bay, Cable Cove, Fisherman’s Cove and Small’s Cove – and each has its own personality. Those in the know head a little further out of town to South Sands and North Sands (take the ferry!).
Devon’s sailing and watersports mecca
Anyone interested in sailing or watersports will love Salcombe. At the town’s sailing centres you can hire your own boat, or if you’re new to the water there’s are sailing schools that will show you the ropes. From sailing boats and power dinghies to unforgettable adventure kayaking tours, there’s lots of ways to mess about on the water. If you fancy getting your feet wet, there are numerous opportunities for scuba diving and snorkelling, suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities.
Relaxation for landlubbers
If you’re not a water baby then there is plenty to do and see on dry land, whether that’s relaxing with a coffee in a local café or pub, or taking a walk along the coastal footpath. Or why not enjoy the amazing panoramic views at Overbecks, a fascinating Edwardian house, once home to an eccentric inventor and now a National Trust museum with stunning terrace gardens packed with exotic plants.
