East Devon Beaches
East Devon is an ideal destination for family holidays with a number of big seaside towns, all with excellent beaches.
Below the Exe Estuary is the popular family beach at Dawlish Warren and the picturesque seaside town of Dawlish. Further south is the big resort town of Teignmouth at the mouth of the River Teign. At low tide the beach at Teignmouth stretches north to Holcombe. On the banks of the River Teign is a small beach at Shaldon. Also at Shaldon, is the long sandy beach at Ness Cove.
On the east bank of the Exe River is the big resort town of Exmouth with its two miles of golden sand. Just east of Exmouth is Sandy Bay and further along the coast is the quiet seaside town at Budleigh Salterton. Further east is the scenic beach at Ladram Bay and the big seaside town at Sidmouth.
In the far east of the county is the long pebble beach at Branscombe, the curved pebble bay at Beer and the big resort town at Seaton with its long pebble beach.
By car, East Devon can be reached via the A38 from Cornwall and West Devon, the M5 if travelling down from the north and the A3052 from Dorset.
