About us

Bantham beach is one of the best in South Devon and ticks all right the boxes if you want a typical English seaside holiday.

This beach is part of the designated South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s also won awards from the Marine Conservation Society and the coveted Blue Flag, so you know it’s clean. You can see Bigbury Beach and Burgh Island from the beach.

Bantham is shallow and sandy so it’s great for families with young children who want to do a little swimming or paddling, and there are lifeguards on duty from May to September. At low tide, you’ll find loads of rockpools that warm up quickly in the sun and are perfect for crab hunting.

Bantham is also one of the best surfing beaches in South Devon, with mellow waves for beginners while the mouth of the River Avon fires out rips and breaks to test even the seasoned surfer.

The beach is well served with its own facilities, including a beach shop where you can buy all the essentials. While dogs are not allowed on the beach between May and September they are allowed on the Estuary all year round, which you can get to at low tide.
