The Devon region
There is an awful lot to choose from in the South Hams area and it is worth exploring to find your own preference, depending on whether you prefer sands or shingle, small coves or large beaches, or are prepared to walk. There is Thurlestone Sands, with its wide sandy beach is one of several locally owned by the National Trust and attracts both families and water sports enthusiasts. The wide sandy beach is backed by a nature reserve where rare and exciting birds have been spotted. Or Bantham (great for surfing, sandy - 20 mins), Beesands (shingle and large - 15 mins), huge stretch from Torcross along Slapton Leys (shingle - 10 mins), Hope Cove (small, sandy - 15 mins) and Blackpool Sands (beautiful clean water sports - 20 mins) driving.
Thurlestone Golf Club is a 5 minute walk away. It is one of the most beautiful courses in the South West of England, set in about 50 spectacular acres on the cliff top with beautiful sea views.. The course is a mix of links and cliff-top terrain with the latter providing breath-taking views of the legendary Thurlestone Rock to the East and the beautiful Avon Estuary and Burgh Island to the West. It provides ideal holiday golf - not too severe with quite generous fairways.
The quaint harbour of Hope Cove is nearby and the vibrant town of Salcombe, with its yachting harbour is a short drive away. Kingsbridge, at the head of the estuary, has a wider range of shops and places to eat.
Further afield, Totnes and Dartmouth are great towns to visit. Dartmoor lies to the north, and the towns of Plymouth, Exeter and Torquay (the 'English Riviera') are an easy drive away.
