AROUND SALCOMBE

Salcombe is said to be one of the most beautiful harbour towns in the world. It remains very unspoilt and is an addictive place, where people feel they want to return to time and time again.

Sitting at Devon’s most southerly tip, it seems to enjoy its own climate, where even semi-tropical plants will grow.

It is famous for its clean sandy beaches, pirate coves, and sunken wrecks, as well as its sailing regattas, fishing fleet and local food.

Salcombe enjoys the designation of being a Marine Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Marine Local Nature Reserve and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so attracts nature lovers and walkers.

The local fishermen catch crab and lobster, but other frequent visitors to the Estuary include dolphin, basking shark and seals, that can sometimes venture right up into the harbour.

Salcombe is also a joy for foodies. The excellent family butcher, the bakery and the family run grocers (not to mention the fabulous sweet shop), all make buying everyday essentials easy and pleasurable.

Salcombe Dairy Ice Cream, is made in the town. Salcombe Smokies are smoked mackerel, caught locally and Devon Pasties are available in pubs and shops alike. There are excellent delicatessens, so if you don’t fancy cooking you really don’t need to.

The scenery, sea air, ferry trips, cosy pubs, excellent restaurants, art galleries and shopping all provide immediate things to do, but there is so much more besides. Salcombe is the quintessential British holiday destination all year round.
