Throughout the seasons South Devon offers a treasure trove of activities to enjoy. From surfing to sailing, swimming to snorkelling, the watersport options are endless.

Prefer keeping those feet on dry land? Walk the coast path, visit one of the many all-weather attractions, or try something different like wild food foraging in the countryside. For the culture vultures, explore Dartmouth Castle, walk the Mayflower Heritage Trail, or visit the many National Trust Houses and Gardens dotted around the region.

Looking to relax and unwind? Head to one of the many fantastic spas, or why not try your hand at fishing or gin making!

With so much to do, from the wet and wild to the slow and sedate, we’ve got it covered…
