    Clovelly Beach Info

    Clovelly beach is pebble (sand at low tide) and holds a sheltered position, carved into the 400ft cliffs of this far North stretch of the Devon coast, has been a favorite Devon visitor spot for many years.

    If you wander down the pebble beach you get excellent estuary views and a waterfall pouring out of the cliff face down to the sea.

    There is a cave behind the waterfall where legend has it that the Arthurian magician, Merlin, was born.

    The fishing village is car free and road down to the beach from the Visitor Centre is steep.

    Small fishing village with 13th century quay, shops, pubs, visitor centre and cafes.
