Combe Martin Beach
A large area of sand set in Combe Martin, a small resort town located at the western edge of the Exmoor National Park, is the home of this particular beach. Facilities include available food, shops, car parks within the town and a nearby campsite. Dogs are allowed on the beach from October to April and the beautiful coastal walks add to the charm of the surrounding area. The beach is also good for families due to the vast stretch of sand and rock pools that will keep children entertained for hours.
It is a superb family beach, a favourite of many locals, understandably as it is located within the Heritage Coast and in an area of outstanding Natural Beauty. It boasts some of the finest scenery and includes the reputedly highest sea cliffs in England. The unspoilt beach below is mainly shingle and pebbles at the top but at low tide reveals plenty of clean golden sand and an abundance of rock pools and deep caves, this offers hours of fun and exploration. It is child friendly as the weir creates ideal water for swimming free from strong currents. Combe Martin itself is 2.5 miles away from the beach and offers a Wildlife and Dinosaur Park.
