Discover and visit some of the best beaches in Devon with this handy travel guide.

Devon’s beaches are endless and stunning. As the only region in England with two coastlines, there is plenty of variety in terms of the character and scenery you can expect to enjoy at the Devon beach of your choice. 

Surfers will relish catching waves at Croyde Beach, while sun worshippers will appreciate the golden sands of Woolacombe Beach in the north and Salcombe each on the south coast, while the charming coves of East Portlemouth and Fishcombe offer a charming setting for a stroll by the sea. Unsurprisingly, you have plenty of choices when it comes to selecting a beach in Devon.
