The popular sailing town of Salcombe, with its picturesque quayside, stunning sandy beaches and fabulous choice of boutique shops and restaurants, is a timeless holiday destination. Situated in the southernmost tip of Devon, on the banks of the Salcombe-Kingsbridge Estuary, visitors can expect exciting mornings exploring rockpools and sandcastle building, relaxing afternoons enjoying traditional Devonshire cream teas in one of the many tea rooms, or action packed days of exhilarating watersports in Salcombe’s safe, clean waters. With so much to do, this area has something for everyone…

For those planning a holiday with their children, South Devon lends itself to a family getaway – summer in Salcombe is particularly special for those with a young family. Take the children to the quayside, where you can enjoy crabbing, or a mouth-watering locally made ice cream. For traditional fun family pastimes, head to one of Salcombe’s many beaches for a game of beach cricket on the sand, or an hour of flying kites!
