South Devon's Premier Family & Surfing Beach ...

Nestling deep in the South Hams at the mouth of the little known river Avon, Bantham beach is one of Devon’s premier beaches. Within easy driving distance of Salcombe and Kingsbridge, Bantham beach is situated in a designated AONB, it offers beautiful scenery with panoramic views over Bigbury Bay and the famous Burgh Island.

Bigbury Bay itself is a shallow sandy bay, which makes Bantham an ideal beach for swimming and paddling for all the family. Owing to the natural topography of the bay, Bantham also has a reputation as one of the best surf beaches in Devon.

At low tide the beach opens up to reveal acres of shallow sandy pools warming up quickly in the sun to create ideal play areas for toddlers. Venture over to the South end of the beach and the low tide will expose a fantastic array of rockpools below the headland.

The estuary and surrounding area are a natural haven for wildlife and enjoyed by walkers using the coastal footpaths. Bantham remains unspoilt and the beach is managed with the aim of keeping it as natural as possible.
