The golden sands of Exmouth’s stunning beach stretch for miles and are hugely popular with people of all ages. There really is no better way to spend a sunny day in Exmouth than on the beach, taking in the stunning views across the estuary, breathing in the clean air and enjoying one of the most beautiful areas of the UK. As well as its unspoilt natural sand, the lovely blue sea is popular with watersport fanatics, swimmers, boating enthusiasts and people who just enjoy a paddle. With lifeguards present during the busy summer months, safety can be assured and dogs are prevented from using the majority of the beach, although there is a designated area where dog owners can exercise their dogs and let them run off a bit of energy.
Across from the beach there are are large selection of shops and cafés, where you can cool off and take in some much needed refreshments. Ranging from traditional ice cream stalls, cafés and more upmarket restaurants and bars, there really is something for everyone.
Eastwards from the dock stretch two miles of sandy beaches, which are clean and safe when used with reasonable care: any danger spots are indicated by flags. Further eastwards, Mear Bay and Sandy Beaches also offer good pleasant bathing facilites.
From the pier, as far as Orcombe Point, runs the Esplanado and its eastern continuation, Marine Drive, from which extensive views over the sea can be obtained.
