Bigbury-on-Sea is the perfect holiday destination, set within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is perhaps one of the most unspoilt coastal regions of the South West of England. The village sits across Devon’s coastal footpath, the South West Coast Path, which links Bigbury to Challaborough Bay and Arymer Cove to the west, and the Avon valley to the east.
With the famous Burgh Island and sea tractor to enjoy and patrolled by RNLI lifeguards throughout the summer, Bigbury-on-Sea’s safe sandy beaches are well suited for family bathing and entertainment.
Bigbury has also been providing a challenge for golfers for 85 years at Bigbury Golf Club. The fairways are wide and the greens fast, but club selection is complicated by sea winds and awkwardly placed trees and bunkers. There’s a stiff challenge of golf here if you can tear your eyes away from the views in all directions. Dartmoor lies to the north, Burgh Island to the west and on the eastern flank, Bantham Beach and the winding River Avon.
