Head to this quintessentially English coastal town where crystal turquoise waters meet golden sand beaches, set against lush green Devonshire hills.
As you board the famous South Sands Ferry, you glimpse a Salcombe Yawl gently bobbing along the calm turquoise waters of the estuary. Take in the beauty of this small harbour town and the waters that've so shaped its rich history.
Enjoy summer rambles along the South West Coastal Path which winds up to Gara Rock, before heading to North Sands beach and Salcombe Castle, constructed during Henry VIII and the famous Salcombe Sand Bar that inspired Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s poem ‘Crossing the Bar’.
