Now that Spring is here, the opportunity to explore the great outdoors has arrived. As Budleigh Salterton sits along Devon’s coastline, you can enjoy a day at the beach surrounded by stunning sights. What’s even better, is that you’ll never be more than 15 minutes away from the beach while in the town, so you can easily pop along for a seaside escape as you please.
Budleigh Salterton is home to a long pebble beach which reaches 2.5 miles, from Littleham Cove to Otterhead. Stretching along the Jurassic Coast, the beach is backed by gorgeous Triassic red cliffs as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Why not see what fossils you can find amongst the pebbles? Talking of pebbles, did you know that Budleigh Salterton’s large pebbles are unique to the town? In fact, they are the oldest rocks in the whole of the Jurassic Coast.
For those of you looking to stay active or if you simply want to cool off, our beach has safe clear waters, however there is no lifeguard so always proceed with caution. However, it is a popular spot with wild swimmers and water sports enthusiasts alike. Why not try paddle boarding or kayaking? Equipment is available to hire locally, perfect for beginners or experts alike.
Dogs can also come along, so there’s no need to feel left out! All year round, your furry friends can enjoy each end of the beach, east from Lime Kiln Carpark and west from the west end of the promenade. During peak season, they cannot join in the fun on the centre section, however from October to April they can play to their heart’s content!
Why not jump into the fun at Budleigh Beach this Spring? Perfect for a refreshing natural reboot, there’s no reason to stay away.
