You will discover that South Devon is the perfect location for the water-sports enthusiast. For the energetic why not try your hand at surfing, kayaking or paddle boarding at Bantham or Bigbury. Salcombe offers boat hire for the experienced sailor, or tuition for the beginner. For a leisurely day sit back and relax on a scenic cruise from Dartmouth, enjoy the wildlife on the River Dart, or venture out to sea for the stunning coastline. Fishing trips can also be arranged from Salcombe, and the area has many private fisheries.
