The Best Devon Beach Breaks

Imagine waking up to views of a beautiful beach, serene river or quaint estuary. Spend the day in the water or simply watching from the window. When you are done taking in the sun and surf for the day, fall asleep in the comforts of your coastal home. Enjoy the sound of tranquil waves crashing, reminiscing on the most perfect day. Name something more idyllic than Devon beach breaks.

The Devon Coast

Devon is straddled by the Celtic Sea and the Bristol Channel to the north and the English Channel to the south. The county offers some of the most dramatic coastal scenery you’re likely to find anywhere in the UK. With a warmer climate in both the winter and summer months, and the South West Coast Path running along both shores, Devon beach breaks are the most sought out of anywhere in the UK.

There is something for everyone!

A favourite for sports enthusiasts, foodies, beach lovers and walkers, and jam-packed with blue flag beaches, there is a beach break for anyone in Devon. Visit the fantastic beaches of Bigbury or Bantham for water sports. Head to Blackpool Sands for rockpools. Take a trip to Thurlestone Beach for sunbathing, or Slapton Sands for mackerel fishing. And most of our wonderful beaches have lifeguards throughout the summer months. Or for a more adventurous day at the seaside, wander the South West Coast Path to find a hidden cove and enjoy the luxury of a private beach for free!

South Devon

South Devon is home to rolling hills, beautiful beaches and calm waters. Dotted with pretty harbour towns and villages, the area is home to some of the best self-catering accommodation with sea views. Highlights include Dartmouth, Brixham and Torcross. If Devon sounds like it’s for you, then check out our selection of coastal cottages or properties by the sea. Make your next holiday an unforgettable one with Your Devon Escape.
