About Wembury Beach

Wembury Beach is set in a spectacular stretch of Devon’s coastline. When you visit Wembury and the surrounding areas there’s lots to explore. From water sports on the beach to rock-pooling with the family, there are plenty of adventures to be had.

Wembury is one of the best places in the country for a spot of rock-pooling. Get to the beach just before low tide and spend a few hours searching the pools and rocks for interesting sea creatures. Then visit the Wembury Marine Centre located near the beach and run by Devon Wildlife Trust. The area nearby is designated a Special Area of Conservation and a Voluntary Marine Conservation Area.

Visitors can take a bracing dip and go for a swim or a snorkel at Wembury Beach with views of the Great Mewstone. With its diverse marine environment there's plenty to see beneath the waves at Wembury.

A walk west towards Wembury point is the perfect site for a coastal walk with views of the entire bay and the Mewstone. A favourite spot for birdwatchers, Wembury Point is home to the rare cirl bunting, found only along this coastline. You'll find the Dartmoor pony grazing on the cliffs of Wembury. These pure-bred ponies are now an endangered species.

A walk to the east along the coast path you will discover Wembury Woods and the Yealm estuary with the foot ferry across to Noss Mayo.
