Just outside down a minor road is a NT car park. It is a mile walk to Snapes Point overlooking this beautiful harbour. A great place for a quiet picnic.

The lovely area of Salcombe is centred on the harbour area. It's lovely just to walk around and there is lots to see and boats to hire if you are so inclined.

Ease of parking and a buzzing atmosphere make Salcombe Harbour the place to be, with it’s wide range of shops, various eateries and beautifully kept gardens Salcombe Harbour is a must stop, the views over the bay and crystal clear waters are stunning.
