Things to do in Salcombe

  • Yawl & Launch hire – Taking to the water is one of the best ways to explore the Salcombe estuary. You can hire a traditional Salcombe Yawl or an 18ft Launch to brush up on your sailing skills, cross the harbour for a day on the beach, or head to the pub on an evening tide.
  • Sailing – Seize the opportunity to sail in one of the most beautiful harbours in the world! You can either learn to sail from scratch, progress to the next level, or hire a dinghy for the day.
  • Kayaking & Paddle Boarding – Sailing is not the only water sport on offer in Salcombe. Hire a kayak or paddle board, and explore this wonderful stretch of coastline with its hidden coves and pretty beaches, head to one of the peaceful estuary creeks to spot wildlife, or at high tide paddle to Kingsbridge and reward your efforts with a drink and a meal at the popular Crabshell Inn.
  • Outstanding Walks – A coastal walk is one of the nicest way to spend a morning or afternoon in Salcombe, and there are several stunning ones to choose from. Pick up the South West Coast Path for a mixed terrain ranging from rocky cliff tops to golden sandy beaches, complete with glorious sea views. Alternatively lose track of time on a country amble through pretty fields, snaking bridleways, and hedgerow-lined lanes.
