Hartland Quay beach is rock, shingle and has spectacular rock and cliff scenery and an old Elizabethan harbour. This is the most north-westerly settlement in Devon.
Hartland is a convenient centre for walking parts of the South West Coast Path, and the wild coastal scenery around the point is some of the most dramatic on the path, with excellent views across to Lundy Island.
Facilities include parking, toilets and food.
The Lundy Company operate their helicopter service to Lundy, during the five months from November to March from Hartland Point.
No dogs May to September.

- Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
