Sidmouth Beach in East Devon

East Devon

East Devon is a region of exceptional natural beauty with wild hills, peaceful farmland and woodland walks. This corner of Devon also has a beautiful coast, where sandy beaches, rocky coves, classic resorts and ancient fishing villages can be discovered. The entire coast is covered by the South West Coast Path, a spectacular route covering 630 miles and regularly named as one of the world’s best walks. Sections of the Jurassic Coast are located within East Devon, with unique geology and dinosaur fossils. Much of East Devon has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where sprawling heaths, wooded combes and lush river valleys have created a paradise for outdoor activities. Further north, the Blackdown Hills are one of the Southwest’s hidden gems, with rivers, streams, forests and hillside walks.
