Devon Beaches

Devon has some of Britain's best beaches stretching along the English Channel coast from Seaton near the Dorset border with Lyme Regis, to the English Riviera beaches at Torbay.

Travelling west along the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Jurassic Coast Devon's many beaches include the shingle beach at the picturesque fishing port of Beer, then along to Sidmouth, Shaldon, the Victorian resort of Exmouth, across the Exe Estuary to the flat sands of Dawlish, Teignmouth then the English Riviera beaches at the resorts of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham including Babbacombe Beach, Watcombe Beach, Maidencombe, Goodrington Sands and Oddicombe Beach.


The North Devon Coast also includes Tunnells Beach, Woolacome and Croyde all Blue Flag awarded beaches along with Blackpool Sands, Challabrough, Bigbury-on-Sea, Meadowfoot, Dawlish Warren, Preston, and Breakwater and Broadsands all on the South Devon Coast.

Water temperatures on Devon's beaches are usually fairly bracing even in mid-summer. Though, if you are into sandcastles or surfing, Devon's many coves, bays and beaches, whether sand or shingle, have something for every visitor.
