Exmouth Beach

Get Directions

Exmouth beach has a sandy 2-mile long beach on the east bank of the mouth of the River Exe. At the western end of the beach is the town and the eastern end has the cliffs, a National Trust owned open space that rises to a peak at Orcombe Point that is the westerly point of the Jurassic Coast.

The beach is on an estuary and this means the tide can be strong and care should be taken when entering the water.

In addition to Exmouth beach, Exmouth is popular for watersports (sailing and wind-surfing) and walking. The Exe Estuary is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a large part of the estuary lies within a nature reserve.

Exmouth marks the western end of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, which stretches eastwards along the coast to Poole, in Dorset; the South West Coast Path allows for walking along this coast. The town is also at the western end of the East Devon Way path that leads to Lyme Regis.

Facilities at the beach include parking, toilets, disabled access and facilities, cafes, shop, seasonal lifeguards, slipway and esplanade.

Exmouth Beach is a Blue Flag Beach and has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.

Exmouth Beach has dog restrictions. Exmouth beach, dogs are welcome all year on parts of the beach and on the main beach from October to the end of April.
