One of Devon's southernmost resorts, Salcombe is a smart seaside town opening out onto a sheltered estuary which glitters beautifully in the frequent sunshine, and is a haven for sailors. Salcombe town, with its chi-chi restaurants and boutiques, rises on the steep, western side of the estuary within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. So as well as sailors, Salcombe is a beautiful spot for walkers.
As well as the beautiful hinterland, Salcombe is also right in the middle of a particularly beautiful stretch of coast, with several sandy beaches spreading out in each direction from the town. Some of the best ones are a bit of a hike by land, so visitors are afforded the added pleasure of spending a lot of time mucking about in open-topped motorboats.
Salcombe was once a great shipbuilding hub and sailing port, and as well as its many success stories, the coast off this part of Devon is littered with shipwrecks, including an ancient ship dating from the Bronze Age.
