Bigbury is the best beach in devon, when the tide is out you can walk across to burgh island, you can stay at the Challaburgh caravan site known to locals as challafornia, its a lovely place about 18 miles from Plymouth.
I hesitate to give this attraction less than a 'very good' rating because the view from the approach road and car park is spectacular, whatever the weather.

There is so much to do here.

The Pilchard Inn serves food and has plenty of character. While we were staying on the island it closed early as the sea tractor couldn't run due to high winds.. Ask the hotel nearer the time re opening hours.
