Nearest beach

Wembury Beach (½ mile)

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Wembury Beach has won awards for its cleanliness. Overlooked by a beautiful Norman church built in 1088, Wembury Beach's soft sands and clear waters attract lots of visitors. Descend the steps onto the beach and choose your sandy perch, or explore the rocky outcrops and peer into rock pools brimming with life. The beach is popular for sunbathing, snorkelling and diving, but please be advised that the beach is not lifeguarded.

Nearest walk

Wembury Beach to Heybrook Bay Walk (½ mile)

Start from Wembury National Trust car park and from the entrance turn down the slipway to the beach. The coastal path will take you behind the beach and along the cliff tops. You will follow the coast past HMS Cambridge and onto Heybrook Bay where you can return back the way you came or head slightly inland and follow the perimeter path around HMS Cambridge and pick up the coastal path again further on. The walk is about 3 miles, and is quite hilly and can be muddy underfoot.

Nearest town

Wembury (¼ mile)

Homes in the South Hams area of Devon are among some of the most expensive in the country for good reason. Utterly unspoilt, brimming with natural beauty at every turn and edged with gorgeous beaches, the South Hams are idyllic. Wembury village perches on a particularly lovely spot of coastline, with low, rocky cliffs to the front and gentle green farmland behind. Don’t miss the Wembury Marine Centre, where they’ll tell you all about the rich sea life that inhabits the south Devon waters.

Bantham (9 ¼ miles)

Bantham Beach is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has numerous awards tucked under its sandy belt. Overlooking Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can take the famous sea tractor and head to the island or sit and enjoy the views from the shore. A great surfing beach, the huge swathes of sand and sea allow plenty of space for everyone. Well-provisioned and life guarded in the summer, Bantham is a fantastic family-friendly beach.

Privately owned beach open to the public. A truly beautiful beach. Wide sands, surfing and wind-surfing, rock pools and a delightfully gentle introduction to the South West Coast Path with views over Burgh Island. No dogs allowed during the summer months. Charge made for car parking.

Great family fun beach

Lovely beach with little coves to hide away in, rock pools and lovely clean sandcastle sand; wide enough for kite buggies, best surfing beach on the south coast along with Bigbury on Sea beach opposite. Burgh Island out to sea with its restored evocative 1930's hotel clinging to the edge was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Island as well as a number of Agatha Christie novels! Dogs allowed on the beach Oct- April and then along the far right hand side (west) during the remainder of the year. Beach balls and skimboards etc plus coffees and teas available from the post office cafe back in the village- great estuary view while sipping away on the deck out back. Lunch or supper in the Sloop pub- best to pre book in season

National Marine Aquarium (3 ¾ miles)

Check out the oceans’ strangest creatures and marvel at the beauty of the coral reef. With 50 live exhibits, three massive tanks, over 4000 animals, and six zones to explore- Explorocean, The Shallows, Atlantic Reef, Mediterranean Sea, Weird Creatures and Coral Seas - there’s plenty to keep the family entertained. Budding scientists and ocean explorers will love Explorocean, two floors of interactive exhibits exploring how technology is being used to help us understand and care for our oceans.

Miss Gilchrist October 2013

We went in the off-season (October) and found it lovely and quiet, with no large school groups or families to contend with. Not the easiest place to find if you don't know Plymouth, though the parking was good. Overall a good location for seeing the Hoe and visiting the prettier parts of Plymouth harbourside.

The aquarium is of a fair size, but we felt the website was somewhat misleading as to the grandeur of the exhibits. The shark tank felt a bit of a let down, as the viewing wasn't as good as I've seen elsewhere. The design of the place also leads to somewhat unfulfilled expectations, as after the shark tank there is more to see, but it ends quite abruptly at the turtles. With a better route it could definitely be improved, though I give 5* to the quality of the tanks and the health of the animals.
