Found right in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bigbury-on-Sea beach is one of Devon’s finest (and trust us, that’s no small accolade).
With a huge expanse of sand and child-friendly shallow waters the beach is one of the prettiest spots in the county and there’s plenty to see and do. With a Blue Flag for its general cleanliness and water quality the beach is accessible for everyone and lifeguards are on hand during high season to keep an eye on the water.
Dogs are welcome throughout the year (but they’ll need to stick to certain areas during the summer) and the rock pools that appear at low tide will keep young children entertained for hours. You can’t miss Burgh Island looming over this beach, and not only was it the inspiration for the island in Agatha Christie’s ‘And Then There Were None’ but she spent time relaxing in its hotel with her good friend Noel Coward.
Fancy a visit? There’s a sea tractor which takes passengers across the water when the tide’s in, or you can wait for the tide to go out and walk along the causeway...either way it’ll feel like an adventure.
