Location, Location!

Bigbury on Sea beach offers plenty of opportunities for safe fun particularly if you’ve got children in tow. It is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of creepy-crawly entertainment for budding marine biologists. While this beach is popular with families, there are a number of facilities and activities available if you’re seeking a bit more excitement on your holiday.

There’s a wide and varied selection of water sports available to visitors who prefer their holidays to feature a little adrenaline rush. If you want to try something different from the usual bodyboarding or surfing then windsurfing and kite-surfing are gaining popularity here, with hire facilities located right on the beach. To give you peace of mind, there are lifeguards present at Bigbury on Sea beach during May to September and the beach also has a first-aid room. Dogs are allowed on the beach although they are restricted to certain areas during the summer.

Excellent Access for Everyone

Bigbury on Sea beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag in recognition of the beach’s excellent standards, particularly its efforts to make the beach accessible to everyone. In addition to good disabled access, Bigbury on Sea beach also provides Beach Wheelchairs for those with mobility requirements. It is one of the South Coast's best locations for windsurfing, canoeing and dramatic coastal walks and is, undoubtedly, one of the most stunning beaches in the South Hams.

Burgh Island

Bigbury’s most famous landmark is Burgh Island, which overlooks the beach itself. The island is accessible at low tide, when the waters reveal a causeway that links it to the beach. However, when the tide is in you can still reach the island by hitching a ride on the popular and unique ‘sea tractor’.
