Bigbury-on-Sea Beach, Bigbury-on-Sea, South Devon

One of South Devon's, and the Westcountry's, most popular coastal attractions

One of South Devon's most popular coastal attractions, Bigbury-on-Sea Beach is a large stretch of sand at the mouth of the River Avon. At low tide, the beach extends to Burgh Island. Across Avon Mouth is the impressive Bantham Beach.

At high tide, you can take the Burgh Island Sea Tractor across the water to explore the island or visit The Pilchard Inn. Burgh Island is home to the famous Art Deco Burgh Island Hotel.

Both Bigbury-on-Sea Beach and Bantham Beach are popular with surfers. Given its popularity with surfers and families, there are lifeguards.

There's a large car park behind the beach but in high season be prepared to park on the outskirts of Bigbury-on-Sea village.

Beaches in the local area include Challaborough Beach and Ayrmer Cove (Beach) to the west and Bantham Beach, Thurlestone Leas Foot Sand (Beach) and South Milton Sands/Thurlestone Sand (Beach) to the east.
