About the neighbourhood
Many beautiful beaches: Bigbury with its beautiful expanses of sand. At low tide you can walk over to Burgh Island, and come back on the sea tractor if you get caught out by the tide! A great place for surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, body boarding. Here you will find the Discovery Surf School. Bantham: a continuation of the vast expanse of sand at Bigbury, but separated at high tide by the Avon estuary. Many families with small children come here. Thurlestone: A lovely sandy beach - at its far end it becomes South Milton Sands, and there is a cafe there. If you walk from Thurlestone towards Bantham, along the coast next to the golf course, you will come to some delightful beaches and coves. Mothecome and Wonwell beaches: delightful beaches each on opposite sides of the Erme ...
