Global Geopark

If there’s one thing we have in abundance on the English Riviera, it’s the Great Outdoors! Our UNESCO Global Geopark is one of only 7 in the UK and is waiting for you to explore.  We have cycling, climbing and kayaking for active visitors or some simply stunning views for those who just want to sit back and relax.

If you really want to get up close and personal to our coastline then why not take a boat trip or one of the great value ferries.  If you are feeling more adventurous why not try coasteering, diving, or wild swimming. Our local guides will be happy to take you on the adventure of a lifetime.

If you’re a fisherman then you can either spend the day beach fishing, or tackle some of the larger catches that lay just offshore and you may lucky enough to spot a dolphin!

Back on land the English Riviera plays host to a dramatic section of the South West Coastal Path, the breathtaking landscapes and rare wildlife are perfect for novice walkers and experienced hikers alike. There are also plenty of off-road tracks for keen mountain bikers.

Find out about your ancestors at the prehistoric Kents Cavern, home to Europe’s oldest man. This spectacular attraction also stages underground concerts and plays – a truly unique experience!
