The West Country region
The English Riviera may be most famous for its award winning beaches and exotic palm trees, but it has much more to offer than just seaside holidays. The English Riviera has more attractions than any other resort in the UK and is also a Global Geopark. There is a great selection of boat trips and tasty local food and fresh fish to enjoy.
There is stunning scenery to be seen on the beautiful coastal paths and a visit to Dartmoor is a must with its charming ponies and beautiful villages. The climate is mild, kept so by the Gulf Stream. As the bay is shaped like a horseshoe facing southeast, it forms a perfect suntrap. Dartmoor, to the north west, brings protection from the prevailing winds, and the Gulf Stream brings warmer waters into the bay, resulting in a climate that is much milder than that experienced by most UK coastal resorts. Winters are mild and short, while spring and summer often extend far beyond the UK norm.
