Discover | Exmouth
Exmouth boasts an excellent sandy beach, however it is rocky when the tide is low. The beach is approximately two miles long and is backed by an esplanade.
The Marina is on the seafront itself and is home to numerous private and commercial fishing boats. Close to the Marina development is Duckpond, which is a popular location for kitesurfing and windsurfing as the water is shallow and calm.
Exmouth is an ideal location for many forms of watersports, such as surfing, body boarding, power boating, water skiing, jet skiing and sailing.
Fishing trips, with many species of fish being caught in the area, can be arranged from Exmouth. You can also take a boat trip to see the spectacular coastline, or journey up the river.
If you enjoy walking there are numerous routes available, with cliff, river and countryside trails. The South West Coast Path (East Devon section) starts at Exmouth and continues for approximately twenty five miles.
Cyclists can take the path along the old railway line which takes you through the village of Littleham and onwards to Budleigh Salterton. It’s a pleasant and easy ride, ideal for those looking to relax and it’s excellent for families.
Budleigh Salterton is a seaside town with a long shingle beach. It’s important to remember to take care when swimming here as the beach ‘shelf’s’ out into the sea.
Situated nearby is the Otter Estuary which provides an excellent area for walking, either by the river or along the red sandstone cliffs.
Approximately three to four miles away you will find the beautiful pebble beach of Ladram Bay.
