Challaborough Map
Challaborough Photo
Description:Challaborough is a pleasant curved sandy beach, with great scenery. Facilities are close to the beach, but unfortunately the Challaborough car parks are small. There is plenty of parking at Bigbury-On-Sea and it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk from Bigbury

Safety:Signs warn of strong undercurrents, large breaking waves and not to use inflatables when windy. Also do not swim in boating lane marked by buoys. Lifeguards from May to September.
