Hartland Quay Beach (Devon)

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.

Hartland Quay Beach has dog restrictions. No dogs May to September.

Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  • Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  • Good: generally good water quality
  • Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  • Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
