Our Salcombe Travel Guide includes… Places to stay, things to do and how to get to Salcombe

Situated on the banks of the Salcombe Estuary on the beautiful South Devon Coast, the harbour town is one of the county’s best-loved holiday destinations.

Salcombe is one of the prettiest towns in South Devon; sheltered by the picturesque surrounding hills that make up the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is well known for its idyllic coastal views. The golden sands and azure waters of its surrounding beaches make Salcombe a paradise for water sports like surfing, kayaking and sailing. From here, the stunning sights of the Devonshire coast are begging to be explored.

The town is lined with boutiques and independent shops, and it’s practically obligatory to sample the delicious Salcombe Dairy ice cream and award-winning Salcombe Gin. Somehow, we don’t think you’ll need much arm-twisting! Find your holiday inspiration with our Salcombe Travel Guide.
