Bigbury-on-Sea and Burgh Island

Situated in Bigbury Bay on the South Devon Coast, Bigbury on Sea offers the ideal family holiday, with wonderful safe sandy beaches and beautiful countryside. Historic Burgh Island lies opposite, seperated from the mainland by a sand spit of a few hundred yards and accessable by the unique Sea Tractor when the tide is in. It’s one of South Devon Coast's best locations for spectacular coastal walks, windsurfing and canoeing, with a golf course nearby.

Beach facilities include toilets, a slipway and first-aid/lifeguards on hand in the summer.
Burgh Island Hotel is a fabulous Art-Deco building built in 1929 and now fully restored. One time bolt-hole of famous personalities such as Noel Coward and Agatha Christie, the rooms are furnished to a high standard with each one bearing the name of a jazz age guest.
