Salcombe’s sheltered estuary makes it the perfect British watersports holiday destination.
If you love being in and on the water then a long weekend or week-long Salcombe stay is a must.
Head out on your own dinghy for an hour or two or bob along on a family size boat thanks to Salcombe Dinghy Sailing.
Should getting stuck-in be more your style, then pop into Sea kayak and SUP Salcombe at South Sands Beach and off you paddle to uncover sheltered bays, hidden beaches and shores teeming with wildlife.
Or head out on your very own private sailing adventure with Sailfunk Luxury Yacht Experiences, where an afternoon tea on the sea or supper under starlight is sure to please.
