Kingsbridge This thriving market town is located at the head of the Kingsbridge estuary, a haven for sailors and wading birds alike. There is a thriving local community, lots of individual shops selling local produce and products, cafes, restaurants and pubs, a museum and several art galleries. The farmers’ market comes to town on the first and third Saturday mornings of each month with a cornucopia of local produce on sale in the town square.
Beaches With 25 beaches to choose from in the South Hams, you could visit a different beach every day for over three weeks! Nearby Bigbury, Blackpool Sands and Challaborough are all ‘Blue Flag’ beaches. Bantham is a Marine Conservation Society recommended beach with rock pools and sand dunes to explore, as well as being a good place for surfing and windsurfing. Beautiful Bigbury-on-Sea and Thurlestone have wide expanses of flat golden sand, while Hallsands is a sheltered, shingle cove. Hope Cove, once frequented by smugglers, is a pretty fishing village with two sandy beaches and shipwrecks!
History and Adventure If you fancy a day out with a difference then visit Burgh Island which is just a five-minute stroll across the sandy, life-guarded beach at Bigbury-on-Sea (at high tide, the famously unique sea tractor transports passengers through the waves instead). This small rugged island has a fascinating history; in the 14th century, resident monks brewed mead and fishermen drank at the Pilchard Inn, still a fine place for tall tales and ghost stories.
Woodlands Adventure Park Here you can find rides and attractions, indoor and outdoor play, plus a zoo/farm with meerkats and falconry displays. Oodles of fun for all ages, come rain or shine!
Plymouth Swim in an art-deco lido, tour a gin distillery, learn to kayak, roam the UK's largest aquarium, take a boat trip across the bay or see a top-class theatre show in Britain's ocean city. Don't miss the historic Plymouth Hoe – a cafe-dotted, wide grassy headland offering captivating views of a boat-studded bay.
