Salcombe Information Centre

Salcombe is nestled at the southern end of a “Ria”, a landlocked, salt water inlet with beautiful safe sandy beaches.

The Ria is a Marine Site of Special Scientific Interest, a Marine Local Nature Reserve and is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which hosts unique habitats and some very special wildlife communities. The town, once a major fruit trade port, is now enjoyed as a delightful safe haven for family holidays and visiting yachtsmen. Hop on board the Salcombe-East Portlemouth passenger ferry, play on the beautiful golden sandy beaches or pick up the South West Coast Path going eastwards.

A leisurely stroll or a determined hike will lead to Gara Rock Hotel, which sits high on the magnificent cliffs with breathtaking views and stunning scenery.
